Japan Amateurs Orchids Society

English edition

Welcome to our web site

President Tatsuo Shimizu
We are a national-wide Orchids Amateurs group in Japan having a long history.
It was established in 1938. At that time, Japan had orchids societies only for the honorable rich people or for business. We aimed to start our society only for amateurs loving orchids.
Our concept is based on making harmony among people through enjoying orchids.

We think it important to protect orchids, to develop the technology for cultivation and to get orchids much more popular in Japanese society. We’re trying to expand the loop of enjoyment presented by orchids with all the amateurs in Japan.

Main activities are as follows

  1. Monthly meeting on the 3rd Sunday in Tokyo
    Display of orchids the members grew.
    Guidance of cultivation
    Popularity poll
    Lectures about the original species Reviews of fragrance
    Market of unique hybrid bulbs
  2. Exhibition
    Orchids Exhibition by our society at Sunshine City every late May.
    Joining every year in the World Orchids Exhibition Japan Awards
  3. Publication and bulletin

In addition to sending these news to all members, we visit verious Orchids Exhibitions held in some places in Japan every year, so that we can make fruitful friendship among members.
