The Japanese Ancestral Society (Nikkei Jin Kai) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the Nikkei community. The group’s goal is to recognize the accomplishments of Japanese Americans, promote fellowship among members of the Nikkei community, and preserve ties with Japan. This is accomplished by maintaining strong relationships with the Nikkei community, the Consulate General of Japan in Portland, Shokookai (Japanese Business Association) of Portland, and federal, state and local governments. Members of the Japanese Ancestral Society regularly participate in activities with other Nikkei community groups.
