This calendar is a resource for Japan fans, featuring Japan-related events all across the Greater Boston and New England area. We work actively to feature all Japan-related events that could help you enjoy Japan in Boston. We hope you will enjoy many of these events and share with us events that we may have overlooked. 

We have additional calendars focused on JSB-organized events.

For events not organized by JSB directly, please check with the presenting organization to confirm all times, dates and event details. We work hard to be accurate but sometimes The Japan Society of Boston is not responsible for any changes or inaccuracies in information about events we feature but do not produce ourselves.
