Meet Jonas Pulver, Head of Communications and Culture at the Embassy of Switzerland in Japan in the 7th edition of this series.

Jonas Pulver is currently taking care of communications and culture at the Swiss Embassy. He moved to Japan at age 30 with a rather limited knowledge of Japanese language, culture or politics. Before that, he had studied music and journalism, eventually landing a job as a staff writer and columnist for newspaper Le Temps in Geneva, and producing stories from the US, Mexico, India, East Asia, Russia and most European countries in addition to Switzerland. In Tokyo, he continued to report as a correspondent for Le Temps and other media (Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, Radio France, Swissquote or Le Courrier) while also learning Japanese and later obtaining a second Master degree in Global Studies at the University of Tokyo. He joined the Embassy in 2017, where he feels he has the chance to combine his interests for international communications, public diplomacy and cultural affairs.

Meet Jonas on September 26 and hear more about his experiences in Japan.
