About JSO



Welcome to The Japanese Student Organization at The Ohio State University's official website!

I am Yuka Sanui, the president of JSO! You're probably wondering whether JSO is for exclusively for Japanese students or for Americans solely obsessed with Japanese culture.

Well, you're wrong. We are very social and open organization, and whether if you're slightly (or not even) interested in Japan or its culture, you are more than welcome to join JSO!

Coming to our events, you get to meet a lot of people with different majors, different background, and different interests. Not only can you make new friends, but you can also a little bit about Japanese culture too :)

Not bad right?
