Brazil–Japan relations refers to the bilateral relationship of Brazil and Japan.

Japan first established diplomatic relations with Brazil in 1895.[1] Japan used foreign aid to promote its trade with Brazil after WW2.[2] Direct investment was used to develop businesses in Brazil.[3] More Japanese emigrants are found in Brazil than any other country, giving Japanese Brazilians a significant demographic presence in Brazil.[4]

According to a 2013 BBC World Service Poll, 71% of Brazilians view Japan's influence positively, with only 10% expressing a negative view, making Brazil one of the most pro-Japanese nations in the world.[5]
