FEBRUARY 2018 ACCJ EVENT
Ringing in a New Year The 2018 ACCJ Shinnenkai
By Custom Media
Last year was a record-breaking one for the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ), and 2018—our 70th anniversary—promises even greater success.
To usher in the new year, members of the ACCJ gathered at the Imperial Hotel on January 18 for the annual shinnenkai. ACCJ–Tokyo Governor Yumi Goto of Coca-Cola (Japan) Company, Ltd. served as master of ceremony, and ACCJ President Sachin N. Shah outlined his vision for the next 12 months. US Ambassador to Japan and Honorary ACCJ President William F. Hagerty IV delivered remarks on the US–Japan partnership, and special guest Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, chairman of Keizai Doyukai (Japan Association of Corporate Executives), shared an encouraging message.
Following the kagami-biraki—the ceremonial cracking open of a sake barrel—members and guests enjoyed drinks, food, and a wonderful evening of conversation and networking. It was the perfect start of what promises to be another remarkable year for the chamber.
