The Kitakyushu International Association promotes international exchanges in Kitakyushu City and the areas surrounding the city.

By welcoming people of different cultures and backgrounds, we are actively working towards the creation of a multicultural society that is conducive to live in for both Japanese citizens and foreign residents.

The Kitakyushu International Association actively promotes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are 17 interlinked global goals that were decided upon at the September 2015 UN general assembly, and are intended to be achieved by 2030. These goals have been put in place to help the current generation fulfill its needs and find a better way of living without destroying the environment and resources that will be vital for future generations.

Here at the Kitakyushu International Association, we promote the SDGs through providing communication support for foreign residents, assisting foreign residents in their Japanese language study, and other support activities.
