JAST West & The Japan Program at University of Memphis
For seven years (2009-2015), JAST and The University of Memphis established joint community outreach in West Tennessee. Under the direction of Regional Chair Kanzi Takayama of Goh America Corporation, with the expertise of Regional Director Dr. Yuki Matsuda and Program Manager Akemi Sommer, JAST West made positive strides to benefit the Memphis community through numerous Japan-related cultural programs and activities.
Today, The Japan Program at the University of Memphis, under the direction of Dr. Matsuda, carries on local support for grassroots outreach activities.
JAST looks forward to working with our many members in the West Tennessee region to launch future initiatives while supporting The Japan Program at the University of Memphis.
With generous community support, there is much we can achieve together toward our mission to facilitate prosperous relationships with Japan in Tennessee.
