Parent Organization: Carnegie Mellon University

JSA (Japanese Student Association) is an organization dedicated to spreading awareness of traditional and modern Japanese culture throughout Carnegie Mellon and the Pittsburgh community. Past events have included food-making, holiday celebrations, and movie nights.

Continuing from the success of Matsuri in previous years, JSA once again plans to host the Japanese culture, food, music, games, tradition extravaganza - MATSURI - in the spring of 2017. This event attracts hundreds of people from both the immediate Carnegie Mellon community, alumni and from Pittsburgh in general. We look forward to seeing you there!


JSA is a diverse organization represented by student from many nationalities, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. We are open to anyone who wishes to join.
