The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania (JASP) is proud to serve the Pittsburgh region for 30 years and counting. Throughout its history, the JASP has been dedicated to improving international understanding and strengthening the ties between Japan and Western Pennsylvania. In addition to providing opportunities for businesses in the Pittsburgh area to connect with people and opportunities in Japan, the JASP has also worked throughout its history to provide education about Japan and Japanese culture.
Long-time board of directors member Steve Guinn, speaking about the value that the JASP brings to its members, says that the JASP "broadened my outlook on the world and expanded my thinking on how to do things. I've benefited from relationships with both Japanese and Americans. The JASP has helped me grow as a person, as well as my global business acumen."
