Last July, the Japan Society of Greater Hartford was awarded the Commendation from the Japanese Foreign Ministry. Last week, we received the certificate of commendation from the Japanese Ambassador to the US at the reception held by the World Affairs Council of Connecticut.
Everyone at JSGH is honored and happy to be acknowledged our activities in this way.
The certificate roughly translates as:
