The EU has founded about 500 European Information Centres (EUis), and 100 Depositary Libraries (DEPs) around the world. There are 18 EUis in Japan, all located in universities, and one DEP based at the National Diet Library. These house the body of official publications of the European Union, such as the Official Journal, Treaties, annual report, Bulletin of the EU, statistical publications, all provided by the Publications Office of the European Union.
EUis can be found in Sapporo, Sendai, Tokyo, Kanazawa, Mishima, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Nishinomiya, Takamatsu, Fukuyama, Fukuoka, and Naha. Click here for a full list of the EUis along with contact information.
To consult official EU publications and documents please contact your nearest EUi or DEP (all EUis are open to the public). Many official documents can also be viewed on the Europa Server website. The EUis can assist visitors in searching for documents online.
The EUis also organise many events during EU-Japan Friendship Week in May each year, including exhibitions, seminars, lectures, quizzes, film showings, and cooking classes.
