Our hearts are with the families affected by the devastating earthquakes that struck Kumamoto Prefecture in mid-April. We wish them strength as they continue rescue efforts and recovery.

In order to assist with recovery efforts, JASSA, in conjunction with multiple San Antonio organizations, is currently collecting donations to bolster relief programs run by the City of Kumamoto.

Welcome! ようこそ!
The Japan-America Society of San Antonio, or JASSA, was established in 1985 to foster increased
understanding and cooperation between the citizens of San Antonio and Japan. As a non-profit, educational, and cultural group, we strive to make Japanese culture better known in San Antonio.


Japan Fest 2016 (Akimatsuri)

Thank you everyone who stopped by Japan Fest on October 16th. With your support our sister city of Kumamoto is one step closer to a full recovery!

We would also like to thank our various guests and performers for donating their time to our cause. Without your support, Japan Fest would not have been such a success.

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
