Who We Are

We are Africans living in Japan. AFAM was established in 2002 with the aim of promoting social interaction between the Africans in the Miyagi Prefecture and the Japanese community. It is the only registered African association in Miyagi that is fully recognized by all relevant bodies dealing with Africans in Miyagi. We organize events and activities which promote African values and culture through performances and service work in the local community.
