The PNLSC

Philippine Nikkei-jin Legal Support Center

OUR PURPOSE

RESTORE JAPANESE IDENTITY

The Philippine Nikkei-jin Support Center is a non-stock, non-profit organization, established in 2003, as a direct outcome of the centennial anniversary of Japanese migration to the Philippines. It is based on a strong recognition of the necessity to provide support, both legally and socially, to Philippine Nikkei-jin who were stricken with hardships during World War II and the subsequent turmoil.

Adhering to our belief that “Every person has a right to know their place of origin, which is one of the fundamental human rights,” our goal is to help Philippine Nikkei-jin restore their identities as Japanese or Nikkei-jin, and to develop the prosperity and stability of Nikkei-jin societies throughout the Philippines, in the the hopes of contributing to further friendly relations between Japan and the Philippines.

PNLSC.org is affiliated with PNLSC.com, created to increase awareness and be more accessible to the Philippines’ English-speaking demographic. With PNLSC, we hope to help enlighten and educate people of Japanese descent, about what they can do to prove their ancestry. Please register with the local Nikkei-jin chapter near you.

  • Reliable and trustworthy resource.
  • No unknown 3rd-party asking unnecessary fees.
  • Legal assistance for qualified Nikkei-jin.
