Japan set up a national committee for organizing events to celebrate the International Map Year. The first event already took place at the Annual Conference of JCA (Japan Cartographers Association) on August 6, 2015. The second event took place at the General Assembly of JCA on February 27, 2016. JCA also produced buttons to celebrate IMY.
