About payment of membership fee

Regular/Student members pay their membership dues by cash transfer to the Japan Post Bank account. It is recommended that you use the payment form provided by us. Corporate membership fees can be deposited into either a Japan Post Bank or a Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation account (Umeda branch, checking account, 246756, The Adhesion Society of Japan).
It is also possible to pay with a credit card.



Only when payment is made in cash by registered mail does our office issue a receipt. When you make a cash transfer, the bank will give you a receipt. An electrical receipt can be downloaded when a credit card payment is made.


Membership ID

After the application process is completed, the membership ID number is provided (paperwork and payment). Please keep your membership ID number because it is required for society’s activities. The membership ID number can be found in mails from the society.

Members of the office with other memberships (special, sustaining, or supporting) have the same access to the seminar, site visits, and meetings as regular members.
Please join us.
