Japan and Pakistan have cordial bilateral relations. Japan was one of the first countries to acknowledge Pakistan’s statehood. After the conclusion of the Allied occupation of Japan in April 1952, ties between the two countries were formally established.
Pakistan was among the few countries that opened its commercial office in Japan in 1952. It also played a significant role in reconstructing the Japanese economy through massive exports.
