The Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20 bridges the Rugby World Cup 2019 and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Japan will organise the Japan Season of Culture in the UK, and the UK will oversee the UK Season of Culture in Japan in parallel. This was agreed between the Prime Ministers of Japan and the UK in August 2017.
The Japan Season of Culture in the UK will showcase Japan’s multi-faceted appeal, from its culture and art to innovation and cutting-edge technology in areas such as medicine, science and industry.
Organisers who register with the Embassy of Japan for the events will be allowed to use the title “Official event of the Japan Season of Culture in the UK” and the official logo for all publicity materials (paper-based such as posters and pamphlets as well as websites etc) to promote the various activities of the “Japan Season of Culture in the UK”.
The design of the official logo uses colours featured in the Japanese and British national flags. It shows interlocking waves to symbolise exchanges between Japan and the UK.
