A Message from Dr. Joshua W. Walker, President & CEO, Japan Society
Going Virtual through Summer and Fall Seasons:
Moving Forward with a Renewed Spirit

Our building remains closed to the public until further notice, but we will continue to innovate digitally through a suite of expansive virtual programs, engaging webinars and online classes. Upcoming highlights include our 2020 Japan Society Annual Dinner: Reimagined Gala and Awards on June 18, which will reinforce our important role in U.S.-Japan relations, and the premiere of the first ever online JAPAN CUTS Film Festival, starting July 17.

We’re here for you - enjoy our wide range of #JSFromHome offerings and be sure to stay connected for further updates!
