Institute for Japanese Studies

IJS at a Glance

The Institute for Japanese Studies (IJS) was created in 1985 through a gubernatorial initiative in recognition of Ohio's national status as the second greatest site of Japanese manufacturing investment. Between 1985 and 1995, IJS received $1.8 million from the state of Ohio to intensify language training, introduce courses for students in professional schools, and reach out to businesses and the community. Today it continues to vigorously promote education and research about Japan.
