The Japan Falconiformes Center (JFC) was established in 1982 as a natural expansion of The Hawking Club of Japan which has zealously preserved the orthodox tradition-led falconry art of Japan.

Preservation of Japanese falconry

   We preserve the skill of Japanese falconry that developed in Edo period (1603-1868).  Several facilities and equipments for Japanese falconry are restored snd used. The skill of our country's traditional falconry developed during the Edo Period enables us to train haggard without making them exclusively attached to any particular individual, therefore injured birds will never be tamed more than necessary, and this same skill may be applied effectively for judging whether the rehabilitated birds are ready to resume wild life.
