Japan Directory of
Professional Associations - JDPA
JDPA is currently allowing full access to all viewers with or without
subscription to the name lists.
This is the home page of JDPA Online. Over 9,000 Japanese
associations, societies, institutes, centers, laboratories and similar
organizations in Japan are listed. You are welcomed to view the index
pages. Just click on the appropriate letter in the column on the left.
For example, "The Art and Music Appreciation Association" (not a real
society) would be listed under "A". It would also be listed in the
subject list under "Art" and also under "Music". This
society might have the Japanese name "Geijutsu to Ongaku Kansho
Kyokai"; and would thus also be listed under "G" in the alfa list.
To see address and contact
information you must be a subscriber with ID and password.
