About the IJCC


Our Mission

The Ireland Japan Chamber of Commerce (IJCC) is a not-for-profit organisation managed by its Members through a Board of Directors chaired by the Chamber’s President.

At the IJCC, we have a simple mission:

To be the foremost business network for Irish and Japanese companies & professionals.


How do we do this?

The IJCC carries out its mandate in a variety of ways including:

  • Organising speaker events, seminars and networking events in Tokyo and elsewhere
  • Lobbying and supporting the enhancement of Ireland-Japan business and trade
  • Providing a forum in which to raise issues of interest to the Japan-Ireland business community
  • Publishing information of value to our members via newsletters, social media or by other media.

We organize events such as:

  • Business networking - monthly business networking events around Tokyo
  • Cultural events - annual Green Ireland Festival in March
  • Ireland Japan Business Awards - held annually in November/December in a hotel venue based in Tokyo
  • Guest Speaker events - Irish politicians, economists, CEO's travelling to Japan visit the IJCC to share their views with our members
  • Collaboration events - we have yearly networking events with colleagues from other chambers including ACCJ, BCCJ, European chambers
  • Ambassador Briefings - Members receive updates from the Ambassador at a breakfast or dinner event
