Jordan has exerted conscious efforts toward cultural activities along with other areas of nation building. The Cultural Grant Aid of Japan was introduced to Jordan in 1981 to further expand the field of the partnership between the two countries.

Since then, Japan granted a total amount of 848.9 million yen (approx. 5,865 thousand JD, as of FY 2005), for twenty one projects, which play an important role in the promotion of cultural, educational and sports activities.

One of the most popular projects of the Aid is a planetarium at Haya Culture Center, Amman. Many school kids learn and enjoy astronomical presentation every day.

Japan's cultural grant has also contributed to human development in Jordan. The Embassy donated Language laboratories three times to the University of Jordan, where the future generation of Jordan learn foreign language for development of their own country.
