The JASV's heart and best wishes go out to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. And we extend our sincerest condolences and deepest sympathy to the victims and their families. Please join us with our donation raising activity to help the victims through the Red Cross.

Please send a check to the JASV,

with a comment, "donation to Hurricane victims.

We will keep you informed of the total donation amount and donors' names on our website which will stay permanently. (Individual donation amount will not be disclosed, so please send us any amount.)

Our tentative goal is to raise $500. And we will continue this until 12/31/2017. Thank you very much for your help.

Matsuri 2017 at Saint Michael's College on March 26th

JASV sincerely thanks all the performers, booth participants and volunteers who helped make Matsuri such a success. Thank you very much!


There was an error about the family admission fee. It should have been $20.00 instead of $25.00. JASV membership is $25.00. So, we will take the following two alternative actions.

1. We are happy to refund your $5.00 overpayment. Please let info@jasv.org know your name and address.

2. Alternatively, we are very happy to register you as a JASV family member. Please let info@jasv.org know your name and address.

We are very sorry for such an error!

Best Regards,

Toshiharu Saitoh, President, JASV
