About Us

The Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia (JASGP) merged with the Friends of the Japanese House and Garden (FJHG), the stewards of Shofuso since 1982, in 2016. In 2017, the newly merged JASGP completed a $75,000 hinoki bark roof restoration on-time and on-budget in October 2017 (assisting the Rockefeller Foundation in replacing some gate roofs in the Japanese garden at their Pocantico Hills, NY estate), and continued to expand the number of Shofuso visitors served, from 30,000 in 2016 to almost 38,000 in 2017.

JASGP’s four program areas are:

  • Shofuso Japanese House and Garden
  • Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival
  • US-Japan Business and Public Policy Series
  • Japanese arts, business, and cultural educational programming
