The Japan-America Society of Alabama (JASA) is a private, nonprofit association in our third decade of encouraging and developing friendship and understanding between individuals who embrace the business, culture, and education of Japan and the United States.
Through programs responsive to social, economic, and political needs, Alabamians are afforded the opportunity to examine and learn from experiences and achievements of both nations. Join us as we promote and cultivate these enriching international relationships.
JASA welcomes members from all business organizations and individuals that have an interest in expanding U.S. business ventures in Japan or wish to promote a congenial climate for Japanese business in Alabama.
Check out the calendar below for our upcoming events! We offer corporate seminars, host guest speakers, and present a variety of cultural programs such as cooking classes and crafts.
We'll also share upcoming events from a variety of organizations around Alabama!
