|The Niigata Japan-America
Society was established under the goodwill
of the American Embassy in Japan and the Tokyo
American Ｃenter to deepen mutual understanding
and promote cultural exchange between Japanese
people with an interest in American and Americans
living in Niigata.
With the co-operation of the Society Chairman (the
Ｇovernor of Niigata Prefecture), the society
is working to strengthen meaningful relations
between our two countries with the support
of the American Ambassador in Japan, Japanese
Government Ministers, the Chairman of the
Tokyo American Center and many economic
and cultural leaders.
In the 40 years since the establishment
of this society, the dynamic change in global politics
and the world economy, in addition to the
remarkable development of transport systems
has brought the many countries of the world
much closer together. Accordingly the opportunity
for travel between the distant countries
of Japan and America has increased,especially
with Hawaii which has become a popular tourist
destination with Japanese people. Friendly
relations between Niigata and America have
increased during this time and in recent
times there has also been an expansion of
business relations in many areas.
Based on the promotion of goodwill with
America,the Niigata Japan-America Society
has contributed to the furthering of international
relations with people from many English
speaking countries over the years.
The society is aiming to further improve
relations and broaden understanding between
the people of America and Niigata by getting
together for the purposes of cultural exchange
through various events,
meetings and parties.
We hope you will join together with us
to promote cultural exchange and communication
and invite you to co-operate with our activities.
Our various events for this year will be
listed on our homepage. We would like to
hear your thoughts and ideas and work together
with you to bring these events to fruition.
We look forward to hearing from you.
