Japan America Society of Alabama

The Japan-America Society of Alabama (JASA) is a private, not-for-profit association in its 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’s ongoing mission is to provide an avenue for the people of Alabama and the Japanese people residing in Alabama to promote friendly personal and professional relationships – all to increase a better understanding of each other’s people and customs.
