The Japanese Association, Singapore was established more than a century ago in 1915 and reconstituted in 1957. The early objective of the Association was to form a mutual-aid group to look after one another’s welfare, set up educational facilities, maintain the Japanese cemetery and promote global exchanges.

Besides serving its original role, postwar Japanese Association has also been more active in promoting exchange and interactions with the Singapore community. Our new clubhouse was also designed to be culturally oriented to suit this purpose.

One of the objectives of the Japanese Association is to become an international cultural exchange ground for people to meet, chat and relax.

The new clubhouse, officially opened by Deputy Prime Minister BG (NS) Lee Hsien Loong on 23rd May 1998, is a building designed and constructed with a modern exterior while incorporating rich Japanese cultural flavour for the interiors.

Complemented by its excellent location along Adam Road, the clubhouse has a built-in area of nearly 8,000 square meters (4 times bigger than the previous location). On a freehold land size of approximately 5,600 square meters, the clubhouse has been built to provide members with improved services in a cosier setting and a much more pleasant environment. It is a clubhouse that can instil a sense of belonging and pride for its members.

With a larger space available, we will be able to better organise our involvements with local charitable activities. More opportunities can also be created for cultural exchange and social interaction on a larger scale between our members and the different communities.

At present we have approximately 4,597Ordinary Members (Japanese nationals with voting rights) and 444 Associate Members. Only Associate memberships are transferable. We have 723 corporate members. (1 April 2021)

We hereby cordially invite you to join us as an Associate Transferable Member!
