Philanthropy Spotlight: Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana

Founded in 1996, the Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana is a nonprofit organization of individuals and corporations with a focus on tri-national relations between Japan, the United States and Mexico, and is a full member of the National Association of Japan-America Societies.

The mission of the JSSDT is to promote goodwill and advance business, civic, educational and cultural interchange and understanding between the people of Japan, San Diego and Tijuana.

A board of directors of American, Japanese and Mexican business professionals and community leaders oversees and promotes JSSDT activities. Some of those business-related events include behind-the-scenes tours of corporations, seminars, workshops, mixers, social events and member-to-member introductions.

Educational community programs range from K-12 outreach and Japanese language learning opportunities through teacher training, study sessions, language groups and competitions. Furthermore, a wide array of exchange programs, missions and tours provide a first-hand look at Japanese business, education and culture.

The JSSDT also promotes Japanese festivals, exhibitions and gatherings that allow all people to celebrate Japanese culture, including the Annual Beer & Sake Festival, as well as theatrical, dance and musical performances.

In the San Diego-Yokohama Youth Baseball Exchange, young baseball players mutually experience each other’s culture through the international pastime.
