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-America Society of Indiana will present the “Japan Update Conference 2016” on Thursday, February 18th, at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis.   Presented in cooperation with the National Association of Japan America Societies, the annual event is designed to inform our audience on key developments in Japan and the Japan-U.S. relationship, as well as to highlight Japanese investment in Indiana.

We’re pleased that the 2016 conference will offer one of the first occasions of the year to congratulate Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana on its Twentieth Anniversary!  Mr. Norm Bafunno, President of Toyota Indiana, will give the keynote luncheon address.  The program will include video clips from the “Toyota Effect” showing Toyota’s outreach in helping other organizations improve their systems through the Toyota Production System philosophy.
