Message from HAJAS President

To Heart of America Japan-America Society Members--

Due to coronavirus concerns, we will not be sending our Student Ambassadors to Kurashiki and the Kurashiki Youth Goodwill Delegation to Kansas City this year is also cancelled. 

In addition, with all of the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus situation, we regretfully have made the decision to cancel the Saturday, October 3, 2020, Greater Kansas City Japan Festival.

The good news is that our planning partners at Johnson County Community College have allowed us a confirmed date for the 2021 festival. That date has been set for Saturday, October 2, 2021. Stay tuned and watch for information about our 2021 on our website in early 2021.

Please keep safe during this very unusual and unsettling time.


2020 HAJAS President
