Our hearts are with the families affected by the devastating earthquakes that struck Kumamoto Prefecture in mid-April. We wish them strength as they continue rescue efforts and recovery.
In order to assist with recovery efforts, JASSA, in conjunction with multiple San Antonio organizations, is currently collecting donations to bolster relief programs run by the City of Kumamoto.

The Japan-America Society of San Antonio, or JASSA, was established in 1985 to foster increased understanding and cooperation between the citizens of San Antonio and Japan. As a non-profit, educational, and cultural group, we strive to make Japanese culture better known in San Antonio.
