  • Saw the original Godzilla about a month ago and found the venue to be elegantly decorated with beautiful Japanese culture from bonsai to sculpture. The staff is super nice and welcoming. Didn't get a chance to experience all that's going on at JS that evening. Am planning to return to focus on other things JS has to offer!
  • While the exhibition itself wasn't very good. The place is nice and can be easily navigated through. Even in the winter when most people keep their coats on, you can walk around comfortably. Good acoustics as well.
  • The Japan Society is a great cultural institution in NYC, sharing Japanese culture and heritage. I take classes at the Society. It’s close to the UN. Great facilities and friendly staff and professors. I’ve taken 2 classes at the Society and I always have so much fun in class. The price for the classes are quite reasonable as well. I definitely recommend to anyone in NYC who wants to learn or improve their Japanese.
  • Really great programs. Great staff. Wonderful experience
  • Amazing place. Great economic seminars. Friends take language classes there. My daughter attended 七五三 there.
