Since 1968, the Japan-America Society of Houston (JASH) has operated as the only organization dedicated entirely to fostering relationships between Japanese and American members of the Houston community.

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, JASH will be hosting a gala and silent auction on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at River Oaks Country Club.

At the gala, JASH will present the first J. Thomas Schieffer Leadership Award to former Japanese Ambassador to the United States, The Honorable Kenichiro Sasae, and his wife, Nobuko Sasae.  JASH also will present to distinguished Houston businessman and civic leader, Marc Watts, CEO of The Friedkin Group and Chair of the Greater Houston Partnership, the first Houston-Japan Friendship Award.
