We’re Japanese speaking people who live in Boise, Idaho area and their friends and family.

We’re cultural volunteers, sharing our Japanese heritage and traditions within Idaho schools and organizations.

We’re a network, where other expatriate Japanese can find friendship, visa advice and support while living in Idaho.

We’re the Idaho Japanese Association. We’re open to all nationalities. Join us!
