2017シカゴ・ローンチ

一回り以上後輩の方がシカゴでショップをオープン、そしてシカゴの和な老舗店を買収。また、新たなお店2店舗を友人が開設中。

更には、仲間のご両親がジャズカフェをオープン。シカゴだけでなく全米で新たなローンチが続いていて賑やかです。

年明けは2日からシカゴで所属している各団体の会合や打合せを一気呵成に。2017年一年間分(?)の お話をさせて頂けて何よりでした。これらのお店を利用させていただきました。ジャズカフェなどはこんなにアットホーム感がある店もいいなと思う次第で、早速ミュージシャン先輩がセッション利用を検討スタート。二郎の味再現企画も楽しみです。

世界都市ランキング第一位はシカゴに。
最先端のレタスグループもそうですが新たなリテールがローンチされていき、どんどんとご来訪者が来られますが、この第一位に相応しくフレンドリーな対応をさせて頂けるように心がけたいものです。


今週からは、

2014 Japan Festival

Ready for the Japan Fest for the year 2014!?


Mike and his friends trying to get ready for the Japan Fest and support. Finally, we have commenced our support toward the event for the year. Come and join us!

J-Pop Concert
J-Pop refers Japanese popular music. Japan Fest presents one-of-of the kind joint concert with Human Beatbox superstar Daichi and Anime-Game singer Ayane.

Daichi is the Third Place Winner of APOLLO THEATER AMATEUR NIGHT! with 22 million Youtube hits and Ayane is the Bishoujo Game Award Winner game anime singer! So don't miss them boys and girls!



Anime
Hoshinokoe Japanese animated production characterized by stylized graphics and characters with fantastic themes. Japan Fest this year has two screenings, “The Voices of a Distant Star,” an award winning OVA and “Memories Off: The Unfinished Film,” an episode of a mega-hit visual novel.

Cosplay, an abbreviation for “Costume Play,” is a performance art in which the “cosplayers” dress up in the costumes of fictional characters from an anime, manga (comic), or game. Japan Fest will host a Coplay Dance Party this year.




Game Exhibition
Namco’s legendary arcade game, Pac-Man, was first released in 1980 in Japan. It soon became a social phenomenon and an icon of 80’s pop-culture all over the world. It is still one of the most beloved games for many adults and kids.

Pac-Man’s Arcade Party - Pac-Man Battle Royale - Dead Storm Pirates - KAWAII Goods

POKEMON goodies from TOMY! and Japanese food, culture and much much more~! Even the Japanese NASCAR Racer. icon28icon27icon26icon12

KIZUNA III

We are thankful to be able to struggle, work, and live today because of all of your support efforts. As we would like to show our gratitude, we would not only support to increase your sales of your products in Japan but also to enter into the Japanese market, establishing your companies there. Contact: Shin

(Three years have passed since The Great Tohoku Earthquake, M9.0 shaking well over 300 miles across with over 10' high tsunami flooding wiping out equivalent size to the entire city of Chicago.

We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for all of your support towards Japan, from around the world. The real recovery is a just starting, but hope that they will be back, some day, strong... Still receiving many words and supporting messages from many friends. Thank you, thank you and thank you.)

絆III!
復興をお祈り申し上げております。 
同時に、どんなに忙殺されていても、海外から支援してくれた沢山の仲間達にも感謝の心を向けさせて頂きたいものです。 ジャパンに世界のパワーを向けていってもらいましょう。 そのようなプラットフォームが続々と始動していきます。

Volunteers Hotline



As everyone is getting busier and busier, we need to create the network of supporters and effective people and tie them up via a hotline!

Feel like a girl scout, serving lemonade and cakes at the concession stand.
My first-time volunteer at Conant. Great job everyone! Go Cougars!

We should build a massive volunteering network here in the Chicago-land.
SD 211 / Local Community / Chicago Futabakai Japanese School / Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Chicago / Chicago Mitakai / Japan America Society of Chicago / Chicago Marathon & Japan Partnership / and all of the other great organizations! Got a plenty of list of volunteer needed organizations, so if you want to participate please give me a hauler! "Let's just do it!"



やってもやっても全然取り組みが足りていない各所のボランティア活動。
応援の悲鳴が上がり続けています。 本日は大学の音楽部長を招いての素晴らしいパフォーマンス! グレートジョブでしたぁ~! 

アメリカでのボランティア活動のシステムは素晴らしいです。 ボランティアにおける指揮者やリーダーたちも最高。 ミクロマネージせずに、日本のややこしさ感もゼロで、ただ何が起こるか分からない状態で現場に集まる人々。 まさに軍隊方式です。 現場にて"Make the best judgement"と"Play it by ears"の大人な判断で判断や行動を委譲されて、ポイントだけを指示されます。 もはや手がまわらないので、

Needing Your Support



My friends were so nice enough to ask me today if I needed any help on anything these days. Well, I never usually ask such, busy helping others, but one thing I may ask you is your support towards the Japanese School here in Chicago.

Throughout the years, the Japanese Chamber of Commerce (JCCC) comprised of over 480 Japanese company members, and JCCC Foundation have been supporting local communities, schools and fundraising via different grants, programs and volunteer activities with great efforts.

As we would like to continue to support the tradition, we would need to do the same for our school too. Being member of the board and alumni, I would like personally to drive the fundraising for the school. Since I can't be selling lemonades, I will continue to cheer up the fundraising activities by committing to train and participate in a 2013 Ironman 70.3. Hope that this will re-energize all of our effort to help the others then. Of course, you are also so welcome to join me in Triathlon and Ironman!

Please mail checks to:
Chicago Futabakai Japanese School
Attention: Fundraising
2550 N. Arlington Heights Rd.
Arlington Heights, IL 60004

* If you would like to receive a receipt, please print this out and write your name/address.
