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 its 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. 

Japan Society of New Orleans is participating in GiveNOLA Day – the community’s online giving event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation – on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 .  By contributing to JSNO during GiveNOLA Day, we will receive a match from the Greater New Orleans Foundation to stretch your donation.  Support us on Tuesday, 1 May 2018 by using the below link to donate:

As an added incentive, the Greater New Orleans Foundation is offering a Rock Around the Clock Prize.  By receiving at least one donation of at least $10.00 in a given hour, JSNO becomes eligible for a $1000 prize.  Drawings are made at the close of each hour, so we have a sign up sheet to ensure we receive a donation each hour.  Use the this link to sign up for an hour:
