Greeting from HAJAS President


To Heart of America Japan-America Society Members--

Well, the year 2020 is already upon us, and your Heart of America Japan-America Society Board for 2020, has been very busy planning activities and events for this year.

The first, HAJAS will be representing Japan at the Nelson-Atkins Chinese New Year celebrations.  Stop by our table in Gallery 206 where we will be exhibiting Japanese cultural items.  Please don't miss Board member John Lytton's shamisen performance as well as drum performance by Three Trails Taiko.

The second is our 2020 Shinnenkai that will be held at Carriage Club. For details and registration, please visit:


I look forward to seeing you at Nelson-Atkins on January 26th and Shinnenkai on February 1st.
