What is CJS?
The Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) is a coordinating unit of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM) which fosters the study of Japan across academic disciplines. We are housed among other area studies units within the School of Pacific & Asian Studies (SPAS), which focuses on the international, intercultural, and multidisciplinary education of UH Students.
