Dilena Takeyama Center for the Study of Japan and Japanese Culture

The Dilena Takeyama Center for the Study of Japan and Japanese Culture at SF State promotes leadership and new voices in the field of United States and Japan relations. Jon Funabiki, Professor of Journalism, is the founding executive director.

The center was made possible by generous gifts from Dr. Kay Takeyama Dilena, a distinguished alumna and professor emerita of business. Born in Japan, Dr. Dilena earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting in 1970 and a Master of Business Administration in 1973 from SF State. The center’s broad mission is to support the study of Japan and to promote cultural understanding between the United States and Japan. With her gift, Dr. Dilena honors her brother, Yasuo Takeyama, a Hiroshima survivor, and her husband, James G. Dilena, a Pearl Harbor survivor.

The Dilena Takeyama Center:

  • Serves as a catalyst to bring together and expand the diverse and rich activities of faculty and students interested in Japan and United States and Japan relations.
  • Sponsors events for the campus community and the public at large, such as conferences, film screening, exhibits and festivals.
  • Collaborates with other organizations in the community and at other universities
  • Sponsors scholarships for students.
  • Provides information and resources that promote understanding between the U.S. and Japan.
