Season’s Greetings

We wish you have a wonderful festive season!

We have appreciated your kind support during 2019. We have achieved so many issues. First of all, we are organising Domestic Family Violence information session for the Japanese community.

We have supported 35 year anniversary of the Sister state agreement between QLD and Saitama prefecture. The Governor of Saitama, Mr. Ono sent appreciation letter to us.

Currently we have another project for supporting vulnerable Japanese youth, called “Bullying and Cyber Bullying information booklet”.

Our organisation is a Not for profit organisation, which is support vulnerable people and enrich our Japanese culture. If you are keen to support us, we are welcome to you to become our member to support our community.

Note that we have added two questions – “Would you like to connect with other people from your home prefecture in Japan?” and “Choose a prefecture”.  We have set up Facebook groups to help JCQ members from particular areas in Japan connect with each other.  If you answer these questions, we will be int ouch to help you join your group.
