Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Austria in Tokyo!
Austria and Japan have been maintaining diplomatic relations since 1869. However, the cultural relations between our two countries are already significantly older and still very vivid. The Vienna Philharmonics and the Vienna Boys’ Choir come to Japan every year. Furthermore, Ars Electronica, the State Opera and the Vienna Volksoper are regular guests in Japan.
Our common excitement for music and culture is the backbone of the relations between Austria and Japan. The Austrian Cultural Forum supports young and innovative artists from Austria to present their works in Japan.
Regarding our economic relations, the ongoing negotiations regarding a free trade agreement between the European Union and Japan are of utmost importance for us. The finalization of the social security agreement and taxation agreement are essential to support the economy in this regard.
Another important task for the Austrian Embassy is providing support to Austrian citizens that are living in Japan. Moreover, we believe that it is vital to promote and facilitate exchange between young Austrians and Japanese people. We are very happy that we recently finalized the Working Holiday Agreement, which enables young Austrians and Japanese to get to know each other’s countries better by working for a short while in Austria or Japan.
Other Austrian offices located in Tokyo are Advantage Austria, the Austrian Tourism Office, the Office of the City of Vienna as well as the Cultural Forum of the Austrian Embassy. Our colleagues are also surely happy to help you at any occasion.
