Abstract: The Nanyo Kyokai (South Seas Association ) was a semi-government organization founded in 1915 in line with greater Japanese interest in Southeast Asia, referred to by the Japanese then as the South Seas following increased economic opportunities as World War One disrupted trade between the region and Europe. As a product of as well as contributor to Japanese interest in the region, the Nanyo Kyokai will come to play a number of different roles in interactions between Japan and the region in its thirty year history, to be disbanded following Japan?s defeat and the dismantlement of its overseas empire in 1945, yet its legacy has not completely departed, in the form of an organization, the Intercultural Communication Foundation which emerged in 1999 claiming to have its roots in the Nanyo Kyokai.
