Annual Programs

Some of our annual programs such as 5:01 events and Tomodachi events have been temporarily cancelled due to ongoing pandemic.  


JASH 5:01 programs are networking events hosted by a corporate sponsor. The 5:01 provides a setting to meet new friends, renew acquaintances and introduce potential members to the Society. 


As one of JASH’s most prestigious events, the Annual Dinner provides an opportunity for members and potential members to show their support for JASH while enjoying an eventful evening featuring a distinguished Keynote Speaker and the presentation of the Bridge Award, which recognizes U.S.-Japan leaders in Hawaii. The Annual Dinner also features a silent auction where guests may place bids to win a variety of wonderful items.  


JASH’s Annual Golf Classic is an exciting event, which provides an opportunity for companies and individuals to support JASH by entering the tournament as event sponsors or teams.  


Led by JASH’s Tomodachi Committee, these programs are dedicated to sharing Japanese culture and promoting friendship across international borders. Programs include: Christmas Tea, Hinamatsuri, and more! 


Miscellaneous special-interest events and programs featuring informative speakers are also offered throughout the year.
