Come celebrate the US-Japan relationship with us at JASO’s 62nd Annual Dinner and AGM.


from 5:30pm, WEDNESDAY MAY 23RD

Castaway, 1900 NW 18th Ave, Portland, OR 97209

This year we are excited to step away from tradition and challenge our guests to a new way of celebrating the strength of the US-Japan relationship in our community.

We have a non-traditional venue, new decor, new food, and a new program. Our goal is to celebrate, to engage, and to network.

We plan to showcase some of our member businesses, host a silent auction, and we’re thrilled to announce a major performance as a central focus of our evening.

Kenny Endo blends Japanese taiko with jazz rhythms, has performed with artists including Michael Jackson and Prince, is featured on soundtracks such as Apocalypse Now and Avatar, and has Kenny Endo Day in Honolulu, his hometown, named after him. Kenny flies in to perform with Portland Taiko with a mesmerizing collaboration that expresses the quality, closeness and excellence of the US-Japan partnership through music.

Enjoy two hours of networking time built in, smaller tables for 8 people to create better quality conversation, meet 250 other individuals who are passionate about the US-Japan relationship, and make great connections and enjoy time together with colleagues and friends.

Join us for our Annual Dinner on Wednesday May 23rd!

Registration opens soon.
