Japan

Greece and Japan established diplomatic relations in 1899. There has been a Greek Embassy in Tokyo since 1960, and a Japanese Embassy in Athens since the same year, when it was decided to upgrade the Japanese Consulate which had opened in 1956. Since then the two countries have enjoyed excellent relations in all fields, with close cooperation and mutual respect between two peoples who represent ancient cultures.

Political Relations

In the field of political cooperation, the two countries are working closely together to upgrade their bilateral relations as well as their response to international crises and current issues of international interest. They also cooperate closely and provide reciprocal support in matters of direct national interest, and mutually support each other’s candidacies for positions in international organizations.

Economic Relations

Cultural Relations and Greek Community

Cultural relations between the two countries are at a very good level, with increased activity in recent years, mainly within the framework of the organization of “Cultural Months” and “Cultural Years”, as provided for in the Greek-Japanese Action Plan for the promotion of Bilateral Relations.

2009 was the 110th anniversary of the establishment of Greek-Japanese diplomatic relations, and was marked with the hosting of cultural events in both countries.
