San Jose JACL

The San Jose Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League promotes Civic engagement and supports the human rights of all persons. We preserve the cultural heritage of Japanese Americans and network with other community organizations and groups.

Our Nikkei Matsuri Connection
Nikkei Matsuri provides the opportunity to share our ethnic culture through food, arts and crafts. The San Jose JACL hasn't participated in recent years, but when we did, we sold malasadas (Portuguese donuts), fried ika (calamari) and korokke (potato croquettes). My favorite memory from participating in Nikkei Maturi is meeting the people who came to the booth and for the variety of foods available.
