The Read Japan program donates books about contemporary Japan to libraries around the world. Libraries can apply to receive books from the "100 Books for Understanding Contemporary Japan" catalogue by submitting applications to The Nippon Foundation. These 100 books, which were selected by a committee of Japanese and foreign scholars, journalists etc., cover five categories, Politics & International Relations, Economy & Business, Society & Culture, Literature and Arts, and History.
