Join us for one of our biggest fundraisers of the year! Enjoy a great day of golf during the Society's Centennial year at the gorgeous Newcastle golf course and network with friends and colleagues while supporting the Society and our mission.

Why join the tournament? The Japan-America Society of the State of Washington is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Thanks to the support of our members and community, our staff, volunteers, and board members have continued to fulfill our mission to promote friendship and understanding between the peoples of Japan and Washington State.

Our Golf Tournament is our biggest summer fundraisers and a popular event for our members and the community. The funds raised from the tournament help support our various education, business, and cultural programming - including:

  • Our Japan In the Schools (JIS) program, where staff and volunteers bring a hands-on experience of various Japanese cultural and language lessons into the classrooms,
  • Our America In the Schools program, which runs similarly to our JIS program and provides free curriculum and resources for schools and educators in Japan to teach their students about U.S. culture and schools
  • JAS-Net networking socials to bring people together over drinks, karaoke, and other fun activities
  • and many others!

We hope you will join us and use this opportunity to connect with other individuals who are also passionate about supporting the U.S. - Japan relationship.
