Right now I'm a student of Highline College studying business and communication study.

Anyway I just started working here from October 2.
Mainly, I'm going to do office working using computer and support events.I would take a few time to get accustomed to the job.

Hello, I'm Shinnosuke.

Hello, I'm Shinnosuke.
It's a beautiful sunny day even in the middle of October!

This is Shinnosuke Ata from Tokyo in Japan. I've been staying in Seattle so far for six months and worked since this September.
As an intern, I'm helping Japan America Society of the State of Washington staff and Japan Student Group hold some events.

The reason why I chose to work at JASSW is to have an interest in the business connection between Japan and the state of Washington; especially I am curious about why so many international large companies were born here. When I intern, I have some opportunities to meet people who I haven't met in my college. These experiences are really stimulating me.

Hello from Mercer Island

Hello from Mercer Island

The Japan-America Society of the State of Washington has been undergoing some changes recently, and we want to keep you all up to date as to what we're doing at the office.

The biggest news we have is that we have changed locations. After operating in Seattle for the last few decades, we have found a comfortable home in a space on Mercer Island. The move went smoothly, and we are settling in and getting back to business as usual.

The other news is that we have two new administrative staff members. Corey Nunn and Yumiko Nesheim joined us at the beginning of September, and we want you to join us in thanking them for all their work so far. We are happy to have them on the team.

If you are wanting to get involved in the projects we're doing here at the Japan-America Society of the State of Washington, please visit our website at We have our 2014 Holiday Dinner and Auction coming up. This is a prime time for volunteers and donations from members and community residents alike. Please come back frequently to find out what we have going on.

Hello, this is Taka. Thank you JASSW!!!

Hello, this is Taka. Thank you...
Hello, everyone. It is June 2nd 2014. It is so sunny today here in Seattle. And I really like the great weather here these day.

My name is Takahiro Ito. I did internship for 2 months in JASSW so far from the end of March and it will be the last week of my Internship this week which is so sad. I really like Seattle and I wish I could get job and stay longer here,

I joined this internship to get a clear idea of what will I do for job after I go back to Japan when I finish 1 year study abroad program at Seattle.

Through involving various events of JASSW; Annual dinner, booth at Sakura Matsuri, Interviewing Riho-san and James-san as a writer of Story of my life, visiting high school to teach Japaneses as JIS volunteer, I could gain many precious experiences which covers business, education, culture.

Although I don't decide what kind of job will I have in the future, those experiences got from this internship experience will help me to get a better life in the future. I can confidently say that I am a completely different person from the one who started to work here 2 months ago!!

Thank you for reading through this blog and if you are curious about me, please contact me any time, especially if you have any job information or employ opportunity here at Seattle, please let me know because I want to work here at Seattle~.

Hello,I'm Ryoma

Hello,I'm Ryoma
I'm Ryoma Kawazoe from Tokyo university of Science in Japan.
I major in mechanical engineering and just finished the first grade.

I came to Seattle to visit my family who lives here, and I'm going to stay here for about two weeks.

I'm glad to have the opportunity for this kind of volunteer.

It's my first time to do something like this and I don't know what I can do since I
have only four times to come here including today.

It seems to be harder than I was thinking first, but I'm expecting to learn new things during these days.

Thank you.

Experience of "Japan in the Schools"

Experience of "Japan in the S... Experience of "Japan in the S...
Feb 25th 2014、JASSWのインターンシップ生として、Japan In the School(JIS)のプログラムに参加してきました。今回は私にとって初めてのJISだったのですが、普段けっして経験することがないことをたくさん経験することができ、一日の終わりにとても充実を感じています。今回のJISでは、シアトルから車で1時間ほどのタコマ市にある、Washington High Schoolで授業を行いました。JISではいつも授業に合わせたスーツケースを持っていき、その中に入っている日本特有のものを使って授業を行います。今回のJISでは日本の“custom”, “shopping”, “restaurant”という設定にそって文化を学びながら日本語の勉強をしました。

Hello, I'm Mitsuyo

Greetings JASSW viewers,

My name is Mitsuyo. I was recently offered this opportunity to work as an intern
at the JASSW.

This is an official OPT opportunity in the US related to my coursework in my major, which is Business.

I decided to join the JASSW since I wanted to know how it built and developed the relationship between Seattle and Japan.

Currently, the JASSW hosts and promotes activities as a bridge for Business, Educational and Cultural exchanges between the State of Washington and Japan.

It give me great pleasure to be involved in these activities with JASSW.

Hello, I'm Artina Daniels

Hello, I'm Artina Daniels who studies at the TAF Academy.

As an intern, I expect to be pushed to my full language learning abilities. I also expect my knowledge of Japanese and American culture to be expanded and to better understand how these cultures cooperate together.

I am interested in how Japanese and American culture is combined in your society. I want to better understand both cultures and how they have been presented to the public.

I would like to bring my knowledge of not only Washington state but of other state's and county's cultures to the Japan Society.
