Japan America Society of Vermont

Dear Community Members,

We at the JASV had the great honor to receive a Commendation Award from the Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono. The delivery ceremony took place on Saturday, 9/22 at a clubhouse in South Burlington. The Consul General of Japan in Boston Rokuichiro Michi delivered it to JASV President Toshiharu Saitoh.

Following is the translation by the government.

More pictures of the ceremony are in the following directory released by the Consulate General of Japan in Boston. The photos were all taken by the Consul for Cultural Affairs Yasuhiro Yamauchi.


We will announce this award at the next Matsuri (3/31/2019) and at that time thank all of our support groups.
