Message from the Consul General
In August 2006, the first Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Ghana in Japan was established, with jurisdiction covering Kyushu and Okinawa Prefecture.
The Republic of Ghana is where Dr. Hideo Noguchi studied yellow fever, and the country’s name may be familiar to many people thanks to the name of the popular chocolate bar. It is a stable country, which marked its 50th anniversary of independence in 2007.
The Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Ghana in Fukuoka will work to further strengthen relationships with Japan and to serve as a contact point for friendship and goodwill in Fukuoka and other parts of Kyushu and Okinawa. The Consulate General assists with the issuance of visas and other procedures for people in Kyushu and Okinawa who are planning to visit Ghana. We also display Ghanaian products, including chocolate, folk crafts, and other handicrafts.
Please feel free to visit us.
