First Internet Society Chapter Founded in Japan

August 1994

The first Internet Society chapter is founded in Japan by, among others, Toru Takahashi, who is instrumental in bringing the Internet to Japan and promoting it throughout Asia in the 1990s. The chartering of the Internet Society Japan Chapter fulfills Internet Society Trustee Hideo Aiso’s statement at INET ’92 in Kobe that there was “great interest in Japan in forming a chapter of the Internet Society.”
