Japanese has been identified as one of the priority languages from the Asia-Pacific region to be taught in Australian schools in recognition of the close economic and cultural ties between the two countries. Through the study of Japanese, students can gain access to the rich cultural tradition of Japan and an understanding of different attitudes and values within the wider Australian community and beyond.

Australia has a significant number of Japanese national residents. Japanese culture influences many areas of contemporary Australian society, including the arts, design, fashion, popular culture and cuisine. Japan has been a close strategic and economic partner of Australia’s for over 50 years, and there is increasing exchange between the two countries in the areas of education, trade, diplomacy and tourism.
