Welcome from the Ambassador
Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Jamaica in Tokyo. Our aim is to reflect the spirit of friendship between Jamaica and Japan and to build a bridge between two different worlds which though far apart geographically, have nonetheless found much common ground and mutual sympathy. It is striking that both Jamaica and Japan have such a strong cultural identity, and this has fuelled a curiosity on both sides to learn more about each others peoples and customs.
We therefore present a brief overview in English and Japanese on relations between Jamaica and Japan, along with useful information on Jamaica, with links on various topics, including Jamaican music and culture, history and geography, as well as on our sporting tradition and delicious cuisine. Please see also our sections on trade and investment for an introduction to our relations with Japan in this area, and to explore potential business opportunities in Jamaica.
Jamaica is renowned for its natural beauty and warm hospitality, and so we invite Japanese travellers to consider a visit to our island in the Caribbean Sea. We present useful hints on travelling to Jamaica and on the attractions and superb hotels that have been enjoyed by over 100,000 Japanese visitors to Jamaica over the past fifteen years. Jamaican travellers to Japan can also find some useful hints about visiting, working and studying in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Visitors to our site will also find up-to-date information on our consular services, including an outline of procedures to be followed for visa, passport and other applications.
Please enjoy our site and visit us often to see the latest news and upcoming events.
