The Japan-America Society of Washington DC depends on your support to help us create and maintain 60th-blackprogramming that fosters the American-Japanese friendship. We work hard to create local programs and events that promote cultural diplomacy efforts between the U.S. and Japan. While relationships between countries cannot prosper without the involvement of the government and a focus on public policy, it is the people-to-people connections that inspire change at the national levels.

During the 2016 Sakura Matsuri, when Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae took the Riverfront Stage as an honored guest, he mentioned that while the Embassy of Japan and JASWDC work towards the same goal – sharing Japanese culture with the U.S. – they could never do anything in size and scale like the street festival. Truly, our presence counts – but we would not be here without the generosity of individuals like you, today and in the future.

2017 was the Society’s 60th anniversary. Our landmark year of celebration has ended, but our accomplishments in the field of grassroots U.S.-Japan relations continue to grow. We have always been here to bring Japan to your community. We have always been here to help care for the roots that you already have with Japan, or to assist you in creating new ones.

Our vision for every year going forward includes you. We are truly grateful for your donation and your support of JASWDC. If you have any questions, please e-mail
