Dear Members and Friends of JASH, A big THANK YOU to everyone who has attended our programs so far in 2022! We've been carefully restarting our in-person programming via hybrid events, and we're hopeful that our attendance will return to "normal" in the coming months. Of course, we also prioritize everyone's health and safety, and are thankful for the technology that has allowed us to stay virtually connected with you all for the past two years. If you missed last week's hybrid Japan Currents program, our recording is now on our JASH YouTube Channel!
