Japan Society of New Orleans

Founded in 1928, the Japan Society of New Orleans (JSNO) is a private, non-profit, nonpartisan organization that endeavors 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.

Our goal is to provide a formal organization to bring together leaders of our community who have a vital interest in, and appreciation for, the history, culture, government, and economic achievement of Japan. Our goal is also to provide and foster understanding, commerce, and goodwill between the peoples of Japan and the United States.
