About FEW Kansai

FEW was established to support foreign women in Japan, both professionally and socially. Being literally “few” in the world, FEW offers a friendly and supportive atmosphere to meet, network and find like-minded friends. From this idea stems our mission: “To provide a forum for networking, career development, knowledge and information exchange, support and friendship among foreign women living in Kansai."
