The Nippon Foundation, an independent, non-profit, grant-makingorganization, began a Book Donation Project last year with the aim of providing books in English about contemporary Japanto libraries overseas. There are one hundred titles in this collection,selected by ten experts on Japan, that we believe can help readersgain a better understanding of Japan. We donate the books mostly to university and public libraries, wherethey are used by students and university staff.  Should you be interestedin applying for a donation, please refer to our website: We hope to hear from you sometime soon.
