About Japan SPOTLIGHT

Japan Economic Foundation launched the JOURNAL OF JAPANESE TRADE & INDUSTRY in January 1982 to help bridge the information gap between Japan and the rest of the world.

It combined official views of Japan with a wealth of features by distinguished writers from Japan and around the world.
In January 2014, the Journal was renamed ECONOMY, CULTURE & HISTORY Japan SPOTLIGHT Bimonthly, and has become an English E-Journal on our website since May 2011.Our website has been renewed in October 2017.
