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 was awarded the Foreign Minister's Certificate of Commendation for 2018. We were honored in recognition of our promotion of mutual understanding between Japan and the US. JSNO is one of five US organizations recognized for the prestigious award.
