Welcome! ようこそ!

 

 

The Japan America Society of San Antonio, or JASSA, was established in 1985 to foster increased

  understanding and cooperation between the citizens of San Antonio and the citizens of Japan. As a

non-profit, educational and cultural group we strive in numerous ways to make Japanese culture become better known in San Antonio.



Port San Antonio  will be leading a trade mission to Mexico City to promote goods and services of manufacturers and exporters of Central and South Texas. The organization invites Japan America Society of San Antonio Corporate and Personal Members to participate.  See more information here.

JASSA Events

 

Along with other special events, the Autumn Matsuri festival was a great sucess.  There was quite an array of music, dance, foods, arts and crafts, martial arts, tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and cosplay.  Thanks to all who attended and those who worked so hard to make it a success!

 

JASSA participates in the Annual Asian New Year Festival to bring Japanese foods, culture, and activities to thousands of people.  New additions include the King William Fair, Founders Day Celebration, Koi Festival, and Anime Convention.

 

If you are interested in helping with planning and initiation of these wonderful events, please contact your board or directors.  You can also indicate your interests on your membership profile through this website.

 


 

Education & Culture

 

JASSA coordinates scholarships, offer Japanese Language Classes, Calligraphy Classes, Outreach activities for K-12 schools, and much more.  For more on our educational programs, see JASSA Educational Programs.

 

Throughout the year, we sponsor or host demonstrations in Japanese arts and culture, many co-sponsored by our sister City, Kumamoto City, Japan.   Watch our events calendar for more opportunities and information.

 


  

Japan-America Relations

 

Through its Sister City Committee, JASSA assists visiting groups and individuals who have come to San Antonio from Kumamoto. JASSA also works with San Antonio Department of International Relations and other organizations for special events and international programs.

 


Quarterly Meetings


Meetings of the Society are an opportunity to gather with others who are interested in Japan and its culture, whether it is for planning, networking, or just the chance to visit in English and Japanese with others who share that heritage.
