Welcome to the Japan-America Society of Indiana

The Japan-America Society of Indiana (JASI) is a not-for-profit cultural and educational organization whose mission is to serve as a bridge of friendship between the people of Indiana and Japan. The Society is supported by a diverse membership of individuals, families, businesses and academic institutions.

The Japan Update Conference 2015 will include perspectives on the globalization - and localization - of Japanese manufacturing and business, including changing trends, opportunities, and challenges. Now in its fourth year, the Japan Update Conference has become a signature even in the Midwest, providing a business, economic and international relations outlook for the year with discussion of developments for Japan and Indiana, as well as key issues for the Japan-U.S. relationship in Asia. The conference draws approximately 200 business, community, government, and economic development leaders from throughout the state and region.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence will deliver Keynote Luncheon remarks with Consul General of Japan Masaharu Yoshida.  The “Japan Update” Conference Opening Address will be presented by Takeo Nishitani, Chairman of Weber Shandwick Japan, Tokyo.
