The Japan America Society of Nevada (JASN) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to enhancing the relationship between the people of Japan and the people of Nevada.
Our Mission Statement
We want to enhance the understanding of Japan, its people, culture, politics
Our members represent the growth and life – blood of our community – construction, tour and travel, restaurants, and professional support services in law, accounting, banking and development. To serve our members and the community, JASN has delivered the Japan Festival featuring Japanese cultural performances and exhibits, and on a smaller scale, participated in cultural exchange with elementary students with workshops on origami, ikebana and reading of Japanese folk tales.
