Coronavirus Update

Japan Society COVID-19 Update

In doing our part to contain the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel, digitize or postpone all public programs at Japan Society through May 31st. While the doors of our landmarked space remain closed, we remain committed to programming virtually, innovating ways to connect us all through inspirational content.

Starting now, we are enhancing our mission through a digital presence that includes rich archival images, video highlights, curators’ picks, activities for families and kids, and more. Plus, you can continue to learn and enroll in web-based Japanese classes through our Language Center, right from your own home.

We hope you will stay engaged with us online. Follow us on social media and let us know what we can do to better serve you!

Ticket Refunds & Donations
We will reach out to all ticket holders by email or phone within the next 14-28 days to issue refunds. We also ask you to consider converting the ticket to a tax-deductible donation, which would be much appreciated during this challenging time. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our Box Office at or 212-715-1258. Our Box Office staff will be available by phone and email only during the closure, with the modified hours of Monday - Friday, 10am- 6pm EST.
