Your steady support allows us to continue building Japan-Alabama cultural, educational and professional ties throughout the state.
JASA is an established 501c3 international professional networking organization in its third decade of existence. We have responded to the many changes that have taken place since we were founded in 1989 and have remained steady and successful in these challenging economic times.
Welcome To JASA
Through programs responsive to social, economic, and political needs, Alabamians are afforded the opportunity to examine and learn from experiences and achievements of both nations. Join us as we promote and cultivate these enriching international relationships.
JASA is one of thirty eight regional members of the
National Association of Japan-America Societies. NAJAS maintains links to a variety of Japan-related websites on business, public affairs, culture and education.
JASA welcomes members from all business organizations and individuals that have an interest in expanding U.S. business ventures in Japan or wish to promote a congenial climate for Japanese business in Alabama.
JASA Alabama Guide
The Alabama Guide contains a great deal of helpful information on Alabama, Japanese-affiliated companies, schools, and organizations in the State, a guide to Alabama living (detailed information on obtaining a drivers license, etc.) and information on Alabama's major cities. The Guide is written primarily in Japanese. As a service to our members, a copy of the Alabama Guide can be sent to you upon request via YouSendIt. For a list of membership benefits including a breakdown of eligibility of receiving free copies of the updated Alabama Guide, see this link.
