The Japan-America Society (JASG) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to promote cultural exchange and mutual understanding between Japan and the State of Georgia. We work with other international organizations and institutions to build appreciation of international culture and commerce in Georgia. At the same time, we have a unique and important part to play as the state's foremost bridge between Japan and Georgia, between Japanese visitors and Georgia's citizens, between Georgia's corporations and Japanese markets, and between Japanese and American families in Georgia.
We reach out to Japanese business people and their families, anticipating and fulfilling their needs. We also reach out to Georgians with a message that international business and tourism are important to Georgia's future, and that understanding Japanese culture and business practices is a way of contributing to the state's growth.
Our programs, events and materials are targeted at groups interested in Japan and America for different reasons, but they have a common thread: They are enlightening, interesting and welcoming. They seek not just to teach about Japanese or American culture and business practices, but to introduce Japanese and American individuals to one another with the purpose of forming lasting professional and personal relationships.
