Thank you for visiting the official website for the 150th Anniversary of Japan-Denmark Diplomatic Relations

In 2017, Japan and Denmark will celebrate 150 years of diplomatic relations with the conclusion of the ”Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation between Japan and Denmark” in 1867. Since then, Japan and Denmark have nurtured a longstanding friendship as two countries that share such similarities as respectively having had an imperial house and a royal family throughout their long histories. There are many events scheduled to happen in order to celebrate this long, positive relationship.

With the opening ceremony in January as a start, a wide range of events are scheduled to take place covering such fields as culture, politics, economics, academic and sports. We hope that many people and institutions from both the public and private sectors will participate in the celebration and be part of people-to-people exchanges. Through such exchanges, we hope that we will see the relationship between our two countries deepened and strengthened in the future.

You can also find information about the official logo on this website. The logo was created through the collaboration between a Danish and a Japanese designer to officially endorse the events. The official events will be listed in the event calendar on this website. Please find further information here.

We appreciate your support and cooperation to make the special year a memorable and successful one.
