Japan US Military Program (JUMP)

Begun in 2015 with the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, with funding from The Embassy of Japan in Washington DC, JUMP offers Japan-America Societies the opportunity to recognize the service of Americans in the U.S. armed forces in Japan, the largest group of Americans to have lived in Japan. Events are designed and implemented by the host JAS, taking advantage of local military installations and connections.
