A Message from President Shiraiwa

The JBAH was established in 1967 as a non-profit organization to foster good will and understanding between Japanese corporations operating in the greater Houston area and local residents, companies, and government.  When JBAH celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017, we reaffirmed our mission to work in partnership with the City of Houston and contributed to relief efforts supporting Houston’s recovery from Hurricane Harvey.


As Houston now confronts unprecedented social and economic challenges caused by COVID-19, JBAH and JBA Houston Foundation, with a support of member companies and individual members, made a decision to commit a $25,000 donation to the Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund and a $25,000 charitable and in-kind donation to the Harris Health COVID-19 Response Fund.


Our membership of 115 companies is committed to the wellbeing and prosperity of the Houston area, and we are gratified to have this opportunity to support efforts to help the most vulnerable members of our community as well as the healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to ensure the safety of all.


Thank you for joining us in our collaborative effort to support our community.


Yoshihiro Shiraiwa
