This document introduces Japan Society of Kansei Engineering (JSKE) established on October 9, 1998. Kansei engineering is a new academic area, and it is a cross-road of interdisciplinary research. In fact, academic members of the society are specialized in such diverse fields as philosophy, education, psychology, art, politics, economy, management, natural science, medicine, physiology, chemistry, materials, mechanical engineering, information, system science, and so forth. In the framework of individual researchers, it is the role of this academic society to offer a place to discuss a common objective of contributing the society by discovering and using values of Kansei based on individual results achieved from their own aspects. This academic society unites a wide range of study areas without being caught in the restriction of conventional categories such as cultural sciences, social sciences, and natural sciences. It promotes a new meta-science and technology of Kansei engineering.
