Why Join?

Established in 1948, the BCCJ is a highly effective and influential organisation, attracting a high-quality membership that embraces a broad spectrum of business and professional interests. While the majority of corporate and individual Members have British affiliations, we also have a large number of Japanese Members and Members of other nationalities.

Much of our strength lies in our extensive relationships, which enable us to provide Members with access to valuable information, events and networking and advocacy opportunities:

  • The BCCJ enjoys a close and long-standing relationship with the British Embassy and together with the British Council and Visit Britain makes up the partnership known as UKNOW
  • We work closely with the British Market Council and with government departments and trade organisations in both Japan and the United Kingdom, including the CBI
  • We work closely with other Chambers of Commerce in Japan, for example pooling resources for the hosting of events when this is advantageous to our Membership
  • We play a key role on the European Business Council, which with more than 3,000 members, is the most influential networking and advocacy organisation for Europeans in Japan.
