Welcome To GCI ! (Global Community Interaction !)

We are a Japan’s first genuine citizens’ group organized by voluntary interpreters.

Global Community Interaction (GCI) was founded in January 1997 by volunteers who were registered at former International Affair Department of Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Since then, we have mainly offered linguistic support, such as free interpretation services and multi-lingual consultation services, to those who are not native speakers of Japanese.

Our goal is to realize a society in which everyone is respected as “human-being” regardless of their race, nationality, thoughts, history or culture.
