about KIEF

KIEF was established by the Kanazawa municipal government in 1989 as a non-profit organization. Through our original projects and activities, we work to promote internationalization and realize a multi-cultural society in Kanazawa. We are located on the 2nd floor of the Rifare building, near Kanazawa Station.
We counsel Kanazawa ‘s non-Japanese residents on a variety of issues relating to everyday life in Japan. All those interested can contact KIEF by e-mail or telephone, and we will help you to the best of our ability.
Please stop by, we are looking forward to meeting you!
