Your gateway to a world of opportunity. The Dallas Morning News called DFW “a beacon for companies from Japan and beyond,” and for good reason — more than 170 Japanese companies have operations in North Texas, and the number continues to grow. The Japan-America Society offers insight into this rapidly changing landscape, as well as opportunities to connect with senior executives engaged in Texas-Japan business.  In addition to these annual programs, we host unique business and networking events through the year.
