Funny Japan project aims to publicize funny things about Japan to an international audience.
We upload articles and movies, and discover and promote other funny people through our events.
In 2016, the number of foreigners who visited Japan was over 20 million, and it is increasing year by year. Looking forward, the government is trying to increase inbound tourism, and in 2020 we will have the biggest financially pointless event of the century – the Olympics.
Japan, once known as the Galapagos Islands of Asia, will now try to be International. The Japanese government gave our country a new nickname to make it appealing as a tourist destination to people from around the world: Cool Japan. Funnily enough, the government decided on this new name in spite of our usual motto: “For Japanese people, the most important thing is to be humble.”
When I traveled abroad, I discovered that foreigners pay attention to and make fun of another side of our culture. They often know more about it than Japanese people do. This side is what we usually try to hide.
Here, we want to stop hiding our real culture and show people around the world what Japan is really like. With this goal in mind, we decided to start the Funny Japan Project.
