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.

  Exchange Program

JSNO is currently conducting a two-year exchange program with our sister city in Japan, Matsue. In 2014, JSNO hosted eleven visitors from Matsue for an exciting week in New Orleans. In October of 2015, we will be sending seven young Americans to Matsue for a week of cultural exchange. 

If you or anyone you know might be interested in participating in this exciting opportunity, please check out the TOMODACHI page where you can find all the information you need to know to apply. Click the link below get to the TOMODACHI page.
