JASH Gala 2017 will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at the Omni Hotel and Resorts Galleria Houston. The gathering will celebrate the spirit of "ki" – the driving force of the U.S.-Japan friendship– and honor an individual who is fostering connectivity between our two countries, Dr. Carlos F. Aguilar.

Dr. Aguilar is CEO of Texas Central Partners, the privately-owned company responsible for developing America’s first high-speed rail that will link Houston and North Texas in under 90 minutes. The high-speed rail line will  serve to bolster ties between Texas and Japan as it will deploy the Central Japan Railway Company’s (JRC) “N700-I Bullet” shinkansen system that has been refined over more than 50 years of operation into the most reliable, comfortable and safe high-speed rail system in the world.

Join us as we commemorate our 49th year with an evening of fine dining, international networking, a silent auction with many unique items, and a stimulating program.
