US-9 Texoma

Howdy, y’all! Texoma JETAA brings the grassroots Japanese cultural exchange from the JET Program back to Texas and Oklahoma. We are based out of Houston, TX, with budding sub-chapters in Dallas, Austin, and Oklahoma, but we want to get you connected wherever you are in the Lone Star and Sooner States!

With over 400 members, we engage Japanese communities across our two states and support JETs on their way to and coming back from Japan. We frequently collaborate with local organizations such as the Japanese American Citizens League and the Japan America Society as well as the Consulate-General of Japan in Houston to host cultural demonstrations, educational opportunities, networking and career development events, and fundraising mixers for local and international charities. At other times, we just like to get together and socialize with friends who have shared in or are otherwise connected to the unique JET experience. Our Halloween and New Year’s celebrations are not to be missed!

Any JET alum or interested community member living in or passing through Texas and Oklahoma is welcome to join our listserv and attend our events. Please contact us at and/or visit our website. You can also find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @texomajetaa. Hope to see you at our next event!
