ようこそ!

(Welcome!)

The Japan Society of New Orleans was founded in 1928 to foster friendly relationships with Japan through the study of Japanese art and culture as well as social and trade contacts between the two countries. Since it’s founding the Society has not been involved with political discussion of US/Japanese relations and confined its endeavors to cultural and social relations between the two countries.

Our goal is to provide a formal organization to bring together the leaders of our community who have a vital interest in, and appreciation for, the history, culture, government and economic achievement of Japan, and to provide and foster understanding, commerce and good-will between the peoples of Japan and the United States.

NEW ORLEANS JAPANESE CINEMA SERIES
Please Join us for a FREE Film Screening on Monday, August 17th at 6:00pm at Cafe Istanbul
JSNO is hosting a Special Katrina Anniversary screening of KASAMAYAKI with Filmmaker YUKI KOKUBO

Shaken by the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters of 2011, a young woman returns to Kasama to make sense of her family’s troubled past. Meditative moments at the pottery wheel punctuated by tense conversations, sudden earthquakes, and radiation level readings, KASAMAYAKI exposes the bittersweet process of coming to terms with an imperfect life, and the healing power of creativity. 

Suggest Japanese films for us to screen at japansocietynola@gmail.com. Write "NOLA JCS" in the subject line.
