At the Black Experience Japan our mission is to share the totality of the black experience in Japan. Through our various video series and documentaries, we aim to create a composite of black experiences in an attempt to paint a more accurate picture of life in Japan for the black individual. We share stories and experiences that will provide insight, information and at times entertainment.
How it Began
We released our first documentary in 2017. That documentary was a response to fear based concerns and preconceptions from black people overseas regarding the black experience in Japan. The goal of our 2017 documentary was to provide insight and information. Today, we still have a burning desire to share a plethora of experiences (and all things black in Japan) in an effort to paint a more accurate picture of life in Japan for the black individual. Welcome to our journey.
In addition to having an archive of our videos, our website will serve as an online resource for black people currently living in Japan and those who have yet to arrive. It will achieve this by providing access to a nationwide black business directory, black events listing, informative blog posts and a discussion forum focused on the black experience in Japan. There will be other features including an online store that will be rolled out in the near future.
