Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of the Republic of Angola in Japan.
Appointed on June 7, 2011, I presented my Letter of Credence to His Majesty Akihito, Emperor of Japan on December 15, 2011. It is a great honor to represent the Republic of Angola as its Ambassador in this wonderful country.
Angola is the second largest oil producer in Africa and its subsoil is rich in various mineral resources. Japan, on the other hand, has technology and advanced know-how. Therefore, the opportunities for cooperation between the two countries are limitless.

A friendly and hospitable people, an amazing variety of attractions, and a dynamic and charming culture make Angola a country worth visiting. As far as tourism is concerned, it can be said that Angola is like a rough diamond, with a huge potential still to be explored.
Angola, officially the Republic of Angola, is the seventh largest country in Africa in terms of size with an area of 1,246,700 km2. The country is divided into 18 provinces. The northernmost province, Cabinda, constitutes an enclave separated from the rest of the country by the Democratic Republic of Congo. The main urban centers, besides the country’s capital, Luanda, are the cities of Lubango, Benguela, Huambo, Cabinda, Lobito, Namibe, Malanje and Soyo.
Angola – Japan Relations
The Angola-Japan diplomatic relations were established in September 1976. The two countries started to exchange high level visits in the late 1980s with the most notable being the visit to Japan in 2001 by H.E. Mr. José Eduardo dos Santos, President of the Republic of Angola.
