The Japan Brontë Society informs of the publication of an article (or more than one, we are not really sure) in the Mr Partner Magazine (Issue 8, August 2016). Apparently it contains an article about Haworth and the Brontës, and an interview with the Japan Brontë Society president, Yoshiaki Shirai.
Also, a Brontë Public Lecture Day was held last month ( June 5 ) at the Yokohama City Kanazawa Hakkei campus. The programme was the following (with the help of Google translation and our imagination):
Opening remarks by Ebine Hiroshi, professor emeritus at the University of Tokyo,
Greetings of Yoshiaki Shirai, President of the Japan Brontë Society

Charlotte Brontë and the extraordinary by Tomomi Minamoto (Setsunan University of Foreign Studies, Associate Professor)
Paying attention to the "extraordinary" elements found in the novels of Charlotte Brontë, and considered in conjunction with the "extraordinary" experiences, such as the London visits and Brussels stay.

The Deployment and Acceptance of Jane Eyre overseas. The United States and the Caribbean by Akiko Kimura (Waseda University Education and Science Faculty Professor)
Centered on  the Jane Eyre influence on Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea.
