Vision & Mission


Our associationʼs vision is “Pax Japonica”, which is about to emerge after the entire world will succeed to go beyond the lasting turmoil in various fields and sectors. Based on the firm belief that Japan, the third largest economy with outstanding social tradition, is destined to play the decisive role in this regard, the institute envisages a new era of the human history will be kicked off from 2025.


To actively participate in the aforementioned historical period of the global community, our institute is dedicated to make a substantial contribution by “giving the people hope and future”, which is literally its mission. While enhancing educational activities in terms of “information literacy” both domestically and globally, the institute publishes “future analytical scenario” twice a year and follows it up with a series of analytical reports.

Profile of Mr. Takeo Harada, Founder of the IISIA

Founder’s Message
Japan seems to be isolated, which is in fact
not the case. She is rather historically dedicated
to lead the entire global communication, once it
gets involved more and more with tremendously
complicated situations on the earth.
At the dawn of the upcoming era, Japan,
the country of “rising sun”, is abruptly about
shine brightly again.
It’s the “Pax Japonica” that really matters.
