The Japanese Government’s “Cool Japan” Hotline
“Cool Japan” refers to Japanese products, media and culture that non-Japanese people feel are interesting and distinct to Japan. The Japanese Government wishes to learn what is cool to non-Japanese and work on disseminating these things further in order to deepen cultural exchange. The Cabinet Secretariat welcomes your opinions on what things are ‘cool’ from the viewpoint of non-Japanese people but unnoticed by Japanese, proposals on how to disseminate “Cool Japan”, and any other proposals to the Japanese Government that may be helpful for the “Cool Japan” strategy. Please note that the Secretariat will not specifically reply to each opinion or proposal received. We appreciate your cooperation.
