We are an organization founded for the promotion of business and economic growth in Hawaii based upon the principle, “Members Supporting Members.”

The organization provides leadership and programs which promote membership interaction, resulting in growth and the continuation of its legacy.

We continue creating opportunities since 1900 to promote fostering friendships, connecting “B2B” (business-to-business), and mālama ka ‘āina (‘caring for the land’).

On October 10, 2019, the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce (HJCC) held its signature food and wine extravaganza — the 18th Annual Chopsticks & Wine — at the Hawaii Convention Center attracting a crowd of over 1,000 HJCC members and guests.

This year’s event featured show-stopping dishes from 19 local restaurants and a wide variety of wines and spirits from well-known beverage distributors. 

The event also included an extensive silent auction where guests bid on over 200 silent auction packages including inter-island adventures, dining certificates, sports memorabilia and much more! Wine enthusiasts enjoyed 6 specially selected highly allocated wines in the Taster’ Club tasting section. 

The event was a huge success thanks to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees for coming out to support this event!

Mahalo to the following for volunteering at our event: 67th Cherry Blossom Festival Court, Central Pacific Bank, First Hawaiian Bank, Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce, Maude Tanaka & Associates, Obun Hawaii, Tommy Hilfiger, and HJCC Members & Friends!!

We look forward to seeing you next October!
