Welcome to Japanese

Welcome to the LUU Japanese Society  



Are you a Japanese student coming to study at Leeds?  

Are you a student studying Japanese? 

Are you a student who has an interest in Japanese or Japanese culture?  

This society is perfect for you!  

We are a society open to anyone in Leeds, hosting a range of welcoming, social events centered around Japanese culture and getting to know other students alike with similar interests. We aim to improve the appreciation of Japanese culture within Leeds and foster British-Japanese relations both within the university and the wider community. All our events will be posted here and onto our social media so keep an eye out for weekly updates to our pages!

We hope to welcome many new members throughout the year!


Our membership is £8 where you get to enjoy exclusive discounts with our sponsors.


Events and Socials 

Weekly Pub Social – Every Monday from 20:00 - 00:00 we have a get together at The Fenton for a catch-up and a mental detox from our busy lives. Whether you like alcohol or not, all are welcome! 


Oshaberikai - Every Friday we have a casual chat and activity related to Japan! We provide drinks and snacks, but we ask that those with allergies let us know of any serious allergies before coming.  

Career events - Throughout the year there are career forums and talks given by an external speaker for those currently job hunting for a job in Japan (these talks are given in Japanese). 

Special Events – Halloween, Christmas, an end of year ball to name a few!
