Japanese Student Association

Brandeis University



Welcome to Brandeis Japanese Student Association (JSA)‘s official website!

JSA was officially founded in 2002, and ever since has been growing its fame on campus. We are dedicated to offering the most authentic and accessible Japanese food to you hungry younglings out there on Brandeis campus, and making Japanese culture a tangible experience. Ranging from sobameshi to the ever popular green tea ice cream, you can expect near-high-quality Japanese cuisine without having to spend $2000 on plane tickets and traveling 16 hours overseas. With the food in your right hand (unless you’re a lefty in which case you’ll hold it in your left hand), you can also experience Japanese-style flower arrangement, calligraphy, kimono cosplay, etc. with your other remaining hand. The 12 JSA E-board members welcome you to our warm, friendly, bubbly community!
