For six decades, the Japan-America Society has brought Japan to the Nation’s Capital community. Since the beginning, the Society has been a grassroots organization – a place dedicated to bringing Japan and America closer together through the people of both countries.
The Society holds programs throughout the year that take a look at Japan, as well as US-Japan relations, from every angle.
The Japan-America Society offers Japanese and English language instruction and other classes for special cultural activities such as Japanese calligraphy, yoga in Japanese, and kimono classes.
One of the Japan-America Society’s most important missions is to reach out to the next generation of young Americans and interest them in Japan and the world beyond our shores.
The Japan-America Society of Washington DC presents a number of signature programs throughout the year. Our signature programs are those of national significance including the Sakura Matsuri and the Japan Bowl®.
