The Japan Society of Boston works across New England to foster friendships between Japanese and American citizens. We connect business to business, culture to culture, country to country, and organization to organization, through cultural, business, educational, and community focused programing. 


A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our June Fundraiser.   Thanks to your generosity, we exceeded our goal of $5000 and raised $5359.10 .  This will enable us to bring meaningful programs in the fall!
