The Thomas Hardy Scoeity of Japan is an academic and literary society founded in 1957 to promote Hardy scholarship. Each year in October the THSJ sponsors a convention and also publishes an annual journal and biannual newsletters. The Society is open to anyone interested in Hardy's life and writings as well as in Dorset, from which many of the major themes in his work, the characters and the landscapes they inhabit, are drawn. New members are welcome to our
growing and evolving Society.
