The forerunner of the Mathematical Society of Japan was the "Tokyo Sugaku Kaisha", founded in 1877. This was the first academic society in Japan. The Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ) was established in its present form in 1946. Currently the MSJ has more than 5,000 members, who enjoy the various benefits the MSJ has to offer, as well as the opportunity to participate in programs at MSJ meetings which take place in spring and in autumn each year. Members have the opportunity to announce their own research at MSJ meetings.
