This program is designed to enrich and expand Japan-related works in various foreign languages, especially in such fields as the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts. This program provides  financial support for foreign publishers to translate and/or publish Japan-related books. The grant shall cover part of the translation cost and/or publishing cost (paper cost, plate-making cost, printing cost, binding cost, etc.). By enabling the reduction of the selling price, and thus making books more accessible to the general public, especially books that are difficult to publish commercially, the program aims to promote better understanding of Japanese culture and Japanese studies abroad.
