Guide to the Consulate General of Japan in Detroit

Thank you for visiting the website of the Consulate General of Japan in Detroit! 

This office was established in 1993 in response to a significant increase in business activity between Japan and the Great Lakes region.  Located in downtown Detroit’s GM Renaissance Center, the Consulate serves and protects the interests of Japanese residents and companies of Michigan and Ohio. 

Today, in these two important Midwestern states, there is a combined population of 25,000 Japanese nationals and 921 business facilities which provide over 105,000 direct jobs (affiliated mainly with the automotive industry.) This region also boasts active cultural and grassroots exchanges, including many sister-city relationships and Japan-related events and festivals held annually.  Local interest in the Japanese language also remains strong, with nearly 9,000 students of Japanese enrolled at Michigan and Ohio K-12 schools and universities. 
It is the Consulate’s ongoing mission to foster and strengthen Japan’s vibrant economic, governmental, educational, cultural, and people-to-people relations with Michigan and Ohio.
