This is to welcome you to the homepage of the Austrian Embassy in Tokyo!
Austria and Japan have maintained diplomatic relations since 1869. Connections with Japan, however, span further back. Suntory Hall in Tokyo, recently, presented an exhibition about, 450 years of musical relationships discovered in Viennese archives.
Austrian culture, especially music, is the most noticeable element of the Austrian presence in Japan. The enthusiasm for classical music has a long tradition in Japan. An important task for Austria now, is to engage the younger generation in innovative ways so, that this interest persists and leads to stronger interpersonal relationships between Austria and Japan.
The major economic challenge for the upcoming years is the planned Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and Japan. The conclusion of bilateral agreements on social security and double taxation with Japan will be important. Free trade with Japan may provide benefits and opportunities that would support the Austrian business community.
Other Austrian Institutions which can be of assistance, if needed, are the Commercial Section and the Cultural Forum of the Austrian Embassy.
