he Himalaya Archive Japan (HAJ) is a Japanese nonprofit organization officially certified by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. HAJ considers both the vast Himalayan area, which can cover the main part of Europe or Japan and the long-time spiritual wisdom as an important “field” and “material” to think about our contemporary world and has been doing some unique activities through the concept “Think of the mother earth, Think from the Himalaya.”
Our organization is mostly funded by membership fees and private donations, and we have a track record of success in using small budgets to carry out relatively high-impact projects including the Himalaya Film Festival.
