Who we are
The Japanese Student Association at the University of Washington promotes Japanese culture and traditions to the greater Seattle community. We offer a variety of cultural events throughout the year.
May 4th • 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM • HUB Ballroom
Matsuri is UW Japanese Student Association’s most popular annual event, and the largest celebration of Japanese culture on campus. Unlike our other (fantastic) events throughout the year, Matsuri’s appeal extends beyond the UW community, inviting everyone of any age to come together and enjoy the festivities throughout the day.
By becoming a member you will get discounts to our events and many stores on the Ave listed below. They only cost $5 and can be purchased at our booth in Red Square.
Every Wednesday • 5:30 PM • HUB Starbucks
A friendly environment for English and Japanese-learners to meet and socialize. Make new friends while improving your language skills. Free & open to non-UW students.

Mon through Fri • 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM • Red Square
