The Japan-America Society is a private, non-profit and non-political organization consisting of individual and corporate members. Originally founded in 1917 as a Japanese organization, Japan-American Societies in the U.S. started collective activity and sporadic meetings during the 1960s. The mission of the Society is to promote understanding and enlightened relations between the United States and Japan. Japan-America Society of North Carolina (“JASNC”) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that promotes goodwill, understanding and exchange between Japan and North Carolina.
