Japan House programs can only happen with the support of friends like you.

Support Japan House

Donate and Become a Tomonokai Member

The Tomonokai (Friends of Japan House) program was established in 1998 to support Japan House programming and to promote an understanding of Traditional Japanese Arts and Culture. Tomonokai has grown to become a vibrant community of friends, for which Japan House is most grateful. When you become a Tomonokai member, you not only support Japan House's programming, but you are also joining others who care about Japanese arts and culture and who believe in the power of these arts and aesthetics to bring about moments of peace and friendship with joyful learning. One hundred percent of Japan House programming is funded by private gifts. The tours, tea ceremonies, open houses, public classes, workshops, events, and more – are only possible because of private donations and gifts.

There are so many ways to support Japan House! Please consider helping to sponsor our 20th Anniversary events through a donation online, or become a volunteer for Matsuri. Japan House fully relies upon your generosity and kindness to be able to continue to provide our campus and community vibrant programming that is immersive, engaging and most importantly, that celebrates diversity! Please contact us for information on how to sponsor, support or volunteer for our 20th anniversary events.

Volunteer at Japan House

Volunteers are essential to Japan House! It takes a crowd of volunteers to make Matsuri happen! From assisting with ticket sales and performer handling to golf cart driving and serving at the Matcha Cafe, we can find a position that you will enjoy. We guarantee you a Matsuri t-shirt, a chance to meet other great folks who love Japanese culture, and a fun thank-you party after the event. Contact us to sign up or for more information.
