Welcome to the Japan-America Society of Indiana
The Japan-America Society of Indiana (JASI) is a not-for-profit cultural and educational organization whose mission is to serve as a bridge of friendship between the people of Indiana and Japan. The Society is supported by a diverse membership of individuals, families, businesses and academic institutions.
Following the earthquakes and aftershocks that have occurred in Kumamato and the Kyushu region, our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of those in Kumamoto and Japan. The Consulate-General of Japan in Chicago has set up a special fund through which contributions can be made to the relief and recovery effort.
The Japan-America Society of Indiana was thrilled to welcome 150 enthusiastic guests for the planting of the Japan-U.S. Cherry Tree Promenade at White River State Park on Saturday, April 9th. The energetic and hard-working volunteers planted 50 somei-yoshino trees on the slope alongside the west bank of the river.
JASI is introduced in the Weekly J-Angle #508 (Free Japanese Community Paper), issued on Friday, April 18th, 2014.
