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’).

Dear Members,

Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays!

It has been an unbelievable year so far. Chopsticks & Wine was a complete success. Congratulations and thank you to Chairman Jason Ito, the committee members, and all the volunteers. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of the event. For those who attended, you will probably agree with me that the energy in the room was something special. This year we had a live auction that helped us set a new record for the budget.

We have also begun the Hawaii Hiroshima Emerging Young Business Leaders Program. Thank you Island Insurance and Tyler Tokioka for your continued support of the program and also thank you Hiroshima Governor Yuzaki for his support. This is the third group of young dynamic business leaders. It is important to continue to collaborate and build lifelong business relationships with our friends from Hiroshima.

The Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating our 120th anniversary in the year 2020. To kick off the yearlong celebration our Shinnen Enkai New Year’s Banquet will be on January 24th at the Sheraton Hotel. Thanks to Sheraton Hotel and Jason Ito we will be celebrating our 75th anniversary of the Shiranami Gonin Otoko with a very special show. We would like to make this evening special and hope that past Gonin Otoko cast members come out to support this Kabuki tradition. Fellow members we need your support too. Please support the Chamber by coming out to celebrate the New Year 2020!

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!
