The Japan America Society of Colorado is 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. Established as a 501©3, non-profit organization established in Colorado in 1989, we strive to be the central point in Colorado for all things relate to Japan.
