JASC: strengthening understanding and building cooperation between colorado and japan through business, education & culture
2016 Year in Photos
We are a 501©3, non-profit organization established in Colorado in 1989. We are a member of the National Association of Japan America Societies. Our mission is to strengthen cooperation and build understanding between Colorado and Japan at a grassroots level. We accomplish this by providing programming in business, education and culture that link our two cultures. We strive to be the central point in Colorado for all things relate to Japan. We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event and encourage you to join today and support our mission!
