Each year, the Annual Dinner of The Japan Society of Boston celebrates the organization's role as a bridge between the people of Japan and America. The Dinner provides an opportunity to support the diverse activities of the Japan Society of Boston. The Society carefully selects individuals to honor who have made outstanding contributions to the greater good in both the US and Japan: business and cultural leaders as well as internationally celebrated artists and performers. 

In addition to our honored guests, The Annual Gala features fine cuisine, world-class music, and a silent auction with specialty items donated to support our mission: to connect Boston and Japan in friendship for the greater good.
