The American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) was established in 1948 as a means of developing commerce between the U.S. and Japan, to promote the interests of U.S. business in Japan, and to improve the international business environment in Japan. Today the ACCJ has offices in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, and represents over 2,700 members from more than 1,000 companies in over 40 countries.

Since its founding, the ACCJ has built its reputation on the strength of providing both American and Japanese members, as well as a rapidly growing international base, with unsurpassed opportunity and advantage through advocacy, information and networking.

As a fully independent chamber of commerce run by and for its members, the ACCJ today is Japan’s most influential foreign business organization, and serves as the primary forum for the foreign business community in Japan to identify and pursue shared interests and goals.
