The Society is dependent upon the many volunteers who share in the mission of the Japan-America Society of Hawaii. From the Directors on the Board of Directors, to members of the Society who volunteer on the various committees, and others who help support the Society's programs, especially with the Society's school programs-Japan in a Suitcase, the Asian-Pacific Children's Convention, Japan Day and Japan Wizards. The Society also thanks the many college interns who volunteer at the Society during the summer and throughout the year. The Society could not exist without the help and support of these selfless volunteers. Mahalo nui loa! Arigatoo gozaimasu!
