Welcome! We are the Singapore Students Association of Japan (SSAJ).

SSAJ is an organization made and run by Singaporean students, for fellow Singaporean students. Our aim is to be a platform for Singaporeans studying in Japan to connect and bond during our monthly events.  Sometimes we need a day off from our daily routine to release our ‘lah’s and to complain about our craving for chicken rice/bkt/laksa/etc. Particularly, for the year of 2018-2019, our events are going to be very makan-focused so we may be able to help with those cravings 😉

If you are a Singaporean studying in Japan for any length of time, be it 2 months to 10 years, do sign up with us and we’ll put you on our mailing list! Apart from information about our monthly events, we also share lobangs (job openings) and useful information about job-hunting in Japan!

Meanwhile, if you are considering studying in Japan for university or an exchange program and would like to get first-hand information or advice, feel free to drop us an email! Anything from the most mundane to the greatest importance is welcome, be it about culture, workload, the language, etc.

On a more serious note, our vision for the year is to increase engagement, continue building our own community and also increase outreach to other communities. We always welcome new partners and collaborations with those who are interested in helping us further these goals. For inquiries, suggestions, and anything else, drop us an email at

We look forward to seeing you this coming year! Once again, do check out our event calendar, and sign up for our mailing list!(^ν^)

President of SSAJ, 2018/19
