The Japanese American Network (JA*Net) is a partnership of Japanese American organizations based in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. A goal of this partnership is to encourage the use of the Internet and interactive communications technologies to exchange information about Japanese Americans -- art, culture, community, history, news, events, social services, and public policy issues. The website is a volunteer project and depends on community participation and contributions.

For your reference, there are several items that might be of interest. A bibliography of Japanese American Health Care/Social Services is included in the JA*Net Social Services area. We also receive many questions about the Japanese American internment during WWII. Feel free to refer to some of the resources found in the JA*Net History area of this website. 

This website is the Japanese "American" Network, but it certainly doesn't mean to exclude Japanese Canadians and Nikkei all over the world. If you can't find it here, other Japanese Canadian resources may be found on the Asian Canadian website www.asian.ca.

We welcome Japanese/Asian American community links. If you have a website that deals with JA concerns or issues, or even a personal homepage, please feel free to add your link in the JA*Net Community Directory. You can add the link yourself in the New Web Links Page.
