"There is so much writing in English on Japanese cinema that can't be accepted at face value — not because the writers are careless, but because the differences in culture and language are just too intricate. When I see August Ragone's name on a piece of writing, it gives me permission to place my faith in it completely. Among Japanese fantasy film historians, he's the best working in English." —Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

How Can You Help the People of Japan?


Kyodo News/The Associated Press


In the aftermath of this terrible disaster, a consortium of Japanese Cinema bloggers and writers, including Chris McGee, Jon Jung, Jasper Sharp, Tom Mes, Kimberly Lindbergs, Jason Gray, Aaron Gerow, Patrick Macias, Todd Brown, Emi Ueyama, and many others, have banded together to help raise money for Tohoku Earthquake relief, by endorsing and supporting the Japan Society of New York's "Japan Society Relief Fund". Please join us in this dire time for Japan and her people — many of whom are friends, family and loved ones.

The Japan Society has created a disaster relief fund to aid victims of the Tohoku earthquake in Japan. Over the years, Japan Society has partnered with several Japanese and American non-profits working on the frontlines of disaster relief and recovery. 100% of your generous tax-deductible contributions will go to organization(s) that directly help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunamis that struck Japan on March 11, 2011.


You can also contribute to the "Japan Earthquake Relief Fund" by sending your check to:

Japan Society
333 East 47th Street
New York, New York 10017
Attn: Japan Earthquake Relief Fund

Please make your checks payable to Japan Society and indicate “Japan Earthquake Relief Fund” on the check.

For additional information, please email japanrelief@japansociety.org.
