About Our Organization

This year, IBCAJ will celebrate Holy Saraswati Puja on 21st Feb,2021 only with the members due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Our organization India(Bengal) Cultural Association Japan (IBCA Japan) was established to increase cultural exchange between India and Japan. It was founded by some bengali people living in Japan and started its journey with Holy Saraswati Puja. Most of our members are from West Bengal(Kolkata) or related with Kolkata. Our aim is to introduce Indian bengali culture in Japan by celebrating Saraswati Puja, Rabindra Jayanti, Indian independence day, Durga Puja and other Indian Bengali cultural events.  

   The culture of India as well as Kolkata has been shaped by its long history, unique geography, diverse demographics and the absorption of customs, traditions and ideas from some of its neighbours as well as by preserving its ancient heritages, which were formed during the Indus Valley Civilization and evolved further during the Vedic age.  India’s great diversity of religious practices, languages, customs, and traditions are examples of this unique co-mingling over the past five millennia. The various religions and traditions of India that were created by these amalgamations have influenced other parts of the world too.
    City of joy Kolkata has long been known for its literary, artistic and revolutionary heritage. As the former capital of India, Kolkata was the birthplace of modern Indian literary, artistic and scholastic thought. Kolkatans tend to have a special appreciation for art and literature; its tradition of welcoming new talent has made it a “city of furious creative energy”. IBCA Japan is a society, introducing Bengali cultures in Japan.
