The Japanese Archaeological Association (日本考古学協会 Nihon kōkogaku kyōkai?) (JAA) was established in 1948 and is a nationwide organization concerned with the archaeology of Japan and the preservation of its Cultural Properties.[1][2] At the time of its establishment there were 81 members and by 1998 3,387, with the majority involved in cultural property management and research in government agencies.[1]


Since 1994 the JAA has published the journal Nihon Kōkogaku (Journal of the Japanese Archaeological Association) (日本考古学).[3][4]
