WELCOME MESSAGE OF THE AMBASSADOR
Dear visitors! I am pleased to welcome you to the official website of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Japan!
Recently, Russian-Japanese relations have been experiencing dynamic development in a number of areas. We conduct regular political dialogues with one another, economic cooperation has been intensifiying, we are engaged in cultural exchanges and have been consolidating regional ties. Japan is one of our leading partners, not just within the Asia-Pacific but throughout the world.
At the same time I am deeply convinced that there remains an untapped wealth of potential for further expansion of the spheres of our cooperation, enhancement of mutual-understanding, as well as the deepening of business and social relations between our two countries and peoples. One of the priorities of the Embassy is also to protect the legitimate rights and interests of our citizens in Japan.
I hope the information you find on this website will assist you in finding the answers to basic questions about the Russian Federation, Russian-Japanese relations, and Russian diplomatic missions and consular offices in Japan.
