Founded in 1985, the Ambassadors Council was named in honor of the late Ambassador James Day Hodgson and the late Ambassador Nobuhiko Ushiba, who were very instrumental in the building of Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. The council consisted of top corporate executives and community leaders and served as a forum for informal communication among the key leaders of the Japanese American corporations and the Japanese American community in Los Angeles. Today we continue to honor the leadership of these two late Ambassadors by recognizing our top supporters.
