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. 


  Exchange Program


               The TOMODACHI Initiative seeks to foster a “TOMODACHI generation” of young American and Japanese leaders                            who are committed to and engaged in strengthening US-Japan relations, appreciate each other’s countries and                              cultures, and possess the global skills and mindsets needed to contribute to and thrive in a more cooperative,                                                 prosperous, and secure world.
