Our Mission

JASM provides a place where both individuals and businesses are able to engage in cultural activities, meet others with an interest in Japan, form new business relationships, learn, and build mutual respect between Japan and America.

Our member supported, non-profit, non-political association is dedicated to bringing the peoples of Japan and the United States closer together in mutual understanding, respect, and cooperation. Through programs and interchange, we endeavor to promote an appreciation of cultural, educational, economic, public, and other affairs of interest to both peoples.

Membership in the society is open to individuals, corporations, and other organizations interested in furthering its programs. Supporting business relationships and providing a place where individuals can engage in Japanese cultural events is a driving force in JASM.

Founded in 1972, JASM is a member of the National Association of Japan-America Societies.


JASM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation registered in Minnesota, and is overseen by a volunteer board of directors elected by its members.  In our most recent financial filing, we reported that 75% of our expenses were directed towards charitable and program expenses.  If you are a JASM member and would like to receive a copy of our bylaws or our most recent financial report, please email the secretary of the board.
