The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania (JASP) is an association of individuals, corporations and organizations in the state of Pennsylvania and its surrounding regions that was established in 1986. Its purpose is to promote understanding and enlightened relations between the United States and Japan.
The Society provides informative, innovative programming in order to encourage a better understanding of the business, cultural, social, educational and political practices and customs of Japan and the United States.
JASP members gain access to business, educational, cultural and social programs focusing on U.S. - Japan relations, which also provide opportunities for developing personal relationships with members of both the Japanese and American communities. Membership is extended to individuals, non-profit organizations and corporations.
The Society complements the existing array or organizations comprising the infrastructure that makes Pennsylvania attractive to Japanese business and expatriate families, as well as institutions that promote Japanese art and culture.
