The Society for Japanese Arts was founded in 1937 by a group of Dutch collectors of, and dealers in, Japanese art. Originally called The Society for Japanese Arts and Crafts, the society became international in the 1960s.[1][2] It currently has over 800 members in 29 countries.[3] The Society sponsors lectures, exhibitions and publications.[3] It awards grants through the Heinz M. Kaempfer Fund, and publishes the journal Andon (ISSN 0168-2997) in English.[4]

In addition to Andon and a quarterly Newsletter (ISSN 1877-3788), the Society’s publications include:
