1.The Embassy of Japan is accepting donations for relief efforts in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake, which took place on 11th March 2011.
We continue to accept payments by bank cheque (addressed to the Embassy of Japan).
All donations received will be converted into Yen and forwarded to the Japanese Red Cross Society to be dispensed to assist the people in the Tohoku region who have been affected by this disaster.
Address for cheques:

Please write your name, address and 'for Earthquake Relief' on the reverse side of the cheque. In addition, if you need a receipt, please request it in writing and enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
(Note: You cannot use Gift Aid and other tax exemptions for charities for your donation through our Embassy even if you are a UK taxpayer as the Embassy is not eligible for such treatment. Also, bank commissions for conversion to Yen will be paid out of the collected donations.)
