JASC is a statewide organization, mainly serving Denver, Northern Colorado, and the mountain west communities of Summit and Eagle Counties.  Our Board of Directors is comprised of leaders in business, government, education, and the arts. The general membership represents most of Colorado’s major population centers and is a mix of Japanese Americans, Japanese nationals, and other Americans.


The Society’s goal is to provide a forum through which the people of our two nations may learn from each other’s experiences and achievements.


The Society carries out these objectives by fostering cultural, personal, business, civic and professional relations between Americans and Japanese; by discussing important issues and interests common to Japan and America; and by promoting – through education – better understanding of the arts, literature, cultural ideals and aspirations of the Japanese and American people.  We strive to ensure that the next generation of leaders of U.S.-Japan relations gains the necessary passion and experience to support this most important bilateral relationship.


We encourage you to join us and become a part of this wonderful journey of friendship and understanding between the Colorado and Japanese cultures.
