Japan-America Society of Greater Austin
The Japan-America Society of Greater Austin (JASGA) is a nonprofit that bridges the cultures of Japan and central Texas and works for friendly US-Japan relations. They provide plenty of opportunities throughout the year to partake in festivals, meet-ups, competitions, and other cultural events. Whether you want to practice the language, try your hand at calligraphy, or shop for (and learn how to properly put on) a Kimono, JASGA’s got you covered. Things have been on pause for the last two years but are slowly re-emerging, so keep an eye on their website for updates.
How to support: Follow their events calendar and donate online.
