The Nepal-Japan Friendship Council was established in 1992 with the primary objective of further strengthening and expanding friendship, cooperation, and understanding between Nepal and Japan and their people through mutual interactions in the areas of art, literature, culture, science, technology, industry and others. To this end, numerous activities such as exchange visits, exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and lectures are being organized in order to understand each other's way of life, history, culture, economy, etc.

The Council has a library in its office. At present, the library comprises of 1000 documents on Nepal and Japan. The Council has plans to improve and extend the collection and turn this into a specialized library with many volumes and as much information as possible for easy access for those who are interested in knowing about various aspects of Nepal and Japan and their people.

In addition to making available information through the library, the Council also disseminates information through an annual document that both presents the views of different writers on various aspects of the two countries, and highlights the Council's activities each year.

The Council's highest body is its General Assembly that represents all its members. It elects the members for the Executive Committee who, among themselves elect the President, Vice-Presidents, and other office bearers. The Executive Committee and its office bearers run the day-to-day work of the Council.

The Council is a non-political and non-profit organization duly registered with His Majesty's Government of Nepal. Membership is open to all those who are committed to its ideas and objectives. The Council activities are being financed largely from its own membership fees and income from its publications, but it is authorized by its constitution to accept donations and grants from governments, individuals and institutions.
