Become a part of the DC US-Japan community!

The Japan-America Society is open to everyone who wishes to share in its mission.

JASWDC Members are united by a strong interest in Japan. They also want to share their interest in Japan and the importance they attach to US-Japan relations with others. Our members work so hard to support the Society’s efforts to reach out to the community through our school programs, the Sakura Matsuri – Japanese Street Festival, and the Japan Bowl.

Individual & Corporate Membership

Membership benefits include:

  • Invitations to the Society’s public affairs and cultural programs, luncheons, book signings, lectures, seminars, receptions, beer gardens, sake tastings, bonenkai (year-end party), US-Japan baseball night, and many other professional and social events.
  • Enrollment in the Society’s Japanese Language School at discounted rates
  • Networking with Japanese and American officials, business leaders, and other members of the Society
  • Access to the Society’s library of over 1,500 books, videos, and DVDs on Japan

In addition, if you have Japan-related work/study experience and are job hunting, our Resume Circulation Service will help you get your resume on the desks of top executives in the Washington area for a small service charge.

The Society also offers a number of volunteer opportunities for all of its members, including helping with the Annual Sakura Matsuri, the Japan Bowl, and the Japan-in-a-Suitcase schools program.
