Established in 1979, The English Agency Japan is a full service literary agency and translation rights co-agency, situated in the heart of Tokyo.

We sell translation rights to Japanese publishers on behalf of foreign clients; represent Japanese publishers and authors living in Japan, in the sale of their projects to overseas publishers; and license electronic, film, television and internet streaming rights to Japan and abroad.

We have seven full-time agents specialising in literary and entertainment fiction, general non-fiction, academic and serious non-fiction, children's books, business books, spiritual/ uplifting and self-help.

We are always looking for opportunities to introduce good, suitable and interesting books and authors to Japan, or to bring to the world a little of what is special from Japan. Please contact us if you feel we can be of assistance. Authors please read our submission guidlines before making contact.
