The Canberra Japan Club was officially formed in 1998 to provide cultural and social exchange amongst Japanese and Japan-related residents living near Canberra and the region, and also to increase the understanding of Japanese culture in the local community.
A few people had been contributed their works to the Haiku/Tanka Column of CJC newsletters since 1998 and developed into the CJC bluebells Tanka Group over the Internet in 2010. The Group has published two anthologies in 2014 and 2017. And it is to publish another one in 2021.
The Group has been holding an online tanka exchange and discussion session annually with the reciprocal group in Lyon, France since 2016.
Saeko Ogi is the convener of the Group.
