The Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC, Japanese: 日本オリンピック委員会) (Romaji: Nippon Orinpikku Iinkai) is the national Olympic committee in Japan for the Olympic Games movement, based in Tokyo, Japan. It is a non-profit organisation that selects teams and raises funds to send Japanese competitors to Olympic events organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The Japanese Olympic Committee has helped organise every bid for an Olympic Games by a Japanese city to date. Japan has held the Olympic Games three times: the Summer Olympics once (1964 Summer Olympic Games, Tokyo) and the Winter Olympics twice (1972 Winter Olympics, Sapporo, and the 1998 Winter Olympic Games, Nagano). Japan will be hosting its fourth Olympic Games and the second Summer Olympics in 2020, also in Tokyo.
