Japan Lumber Journal is an English-language media that provides information on Japan’s timber market, which has a major impact on the global timber market. We help people who are developing timber business in the Japanese market and who are considering entering the market. Overseas associations, government agencies and others who are looking at the forest products industry from a global perspective also receive information from the journal.   As the role of forests diversifies in future, our mission with the Japan Lumber Journal is to deliver information related to Japanese timber in various ways to people who need it.
