Established in 1983, The Japan Club of Sydney (JCS) is a non-profit organization operating as an ethnic group under NSW law, with a neutral policy on religion and politics. Most members reside in New South Wales, and are predominantly of Japanese descent.

Managed by volunteers, the JCS works to foster friendship between Japanese families, promote Japanese culture and improve mutual understanding with other ethnic groups. It regularly conducts friendship activities, as well as publishing newsletters and supporting Japanese language education for children.
