Celebrate a brand-new year and the 10th birthday of the Club’s Azabudai home at an evening of festivities among friends.
This evening bash features a lineup of traditional New Year’s entertainment, including a kagami biraki sake barrel-breaking ceremony, a shishimai lion dance and a colorful performance of kagura, a form of Shinto theatrical dance.
Akira Katogi, Shunsuke Kimura, Kumiko Hirasawa and Mao Sakurada of the Wariki performance troupe provide the traditional entertainment.
With the Club marking a decade since it first opened the doors of its impressive, Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed Azabudai facility on January 18, 2011 (pictured), the Library’s Drew Damron highlights the Club’s milestone moments over the last 10 years in a short presentation.
This is followed by an update on the Club’s next landmark event—the launch of its Nihonbashi satellite facility—by Ginger Griggs, chair of the TAC Nihonbashi Task Force.
Celebratory sake, a selection of savory Japanese and Western delicacies and the smooth jazz vibes of Kevin McHugh and Monique Dehaney complete what is sure to be a memorable start to the year—and the next era of the Club.
