The Soga Japan Center at WMU is committed to advancing knowledge of Japanese history, culture, science, business, and technology throughout southwest Michigan. It serves this mission by providing community outreach, a rich variety of educational programs, and support for both Japanese exchange students as well as students and faculty conducting research on Japan.
