About Japanaroo

What is “Japanaroo”?

“Japanaroo” is a new initiative, which started in 2021, to promote exchange and collaboration between Japan and Australia across culture, food, tourism, education, career development, sports, and technology and innovation.

“Japanaroo” aspires to be an “interface” connecting established and emerging ideas and activities. It will act as an “enabler” to provide opportunities for synergy across multiple sectors, leveraging the strengths of both Australia and Japan. “Japanaroo” will build on Australia’s multiculturalism and innovation, while drawing on Japan’s globalisation and regional connectivity.

The “Japanaroo” initiative facilitates an annual special period of on-site and online events organised by Japanese and Australian organisations and companies collectively like a “potluck party”, which started in Sydney with the aim of expanding further, engaging organisations and companies across sectors sharing the same aspirations and wishing to come on board. “Japanaroo” is more than just a showcase of Japanese culture. It is a “Japan-Australia Exchange and Collaboration Festival” through which event organisers and participants develop organic networks with a sustainable impact for their futures.

“Japanaroo” is managed under a public-private partnership led by Japanese and Australian organisations and companies across multiple sectors.

Japanaroo 2022

Building on the achievements of “Japanaroo 2021” and “Japanaroo+”, “Japanaroo 2022” will be held in Sydney and beyond from Saturday, 3 September to Sunday, 11 September 2022. During this time participating Japanese and Australian organisations and companies will hold special events connecting Japan and Australia across culture, food, tourism, education, career development, sports, and technology and innovation. Organisers can expect their event will be a conduit for cross-sectoral exchange and collaboration, reaching participants from all walks of life.
