Amical Japonais de la Nouvelle-Calédonie (Japan–NC Friendship Association)
Many of the second and third generation of Japanese emigrants are the members of this association. They celebrated anniversary of Japanese emigrants in NC, associate the Japanese culture festival organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, etc. Unfortunately nobody understand Japanese but they are interesting in the history of Japanese emigrants and very helpful for the people who are looking for their family roots.
