The Japan Foundation, Toronto, which opened in 1995 as one of 19 Japan Foundation offices around the world, is mainly funded by the Japanese government. Its purpose is to promote international cultural exchange between Japan and other countries. The library holds approximately 16,000 volumes of Japan-related prints and audio-visual materials in its collection. This spring, the JFT library opened a new Pop Culture Corner featuring popular contemporary manga, magazines, CDs and other media, which has been very popular and has brought in many new patrons.
The tour of the library and gallery will be offered by Chief Librarian Mariko Liliefeldt, 1995 graduate of FIS. “Origami Architecture” will be exhibited in the Gallery during the tour.
