June brings the rainy season to Japan which promises that the summer is just around the corner. June also is the end of the FEW year. This year we want to slide into summer with a relaxed social. Interact with our diverse membership from all over Japan and connect with your board, in particular, our Vice President and sake expert, Kyoko Nagano.

We are planning a relaxed and fun evening with social fun and sake testing and discovery. Get to know each other on a deeper level or just hang out and have a laugh. Bring your beverages of choice and make it a real party. 

This year Summer Social will feature « special Q&A with our own in-house sake expert, Vice President Kyoko Nagano ». There are no official speakers – it is you, our members, who are the stars of this event.

Kyoko is a Japanese national who was born in Seoul, South Korea, raised in Jeddah Saudi Arabia and in the United States. She worked at ITOCHU Corporation, UBS, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, AIG and MetLife but as a trailing spouse, she had to give up her corporate career and lived in California for 2 and a half years and in Thailand for 5 years with her family as a housewife and a mother of 2 kids. 

Ever since she came back to Japan, her passion to introduce Japanese culture and to support struggling sake breweries led her to launch two businesses in 2018 and one company in 2019 and she was recently interviewed by Savvy Tokyo here.

She has been serving as a board member since 2018, currently in Vice President role and she also volunteering at InterNations as an Ambassador.
