Dear Friends of JCC,

Happy New Year! 新年あけましておめでとうございます。

I am delighted to usher in a new year for the first time in Singapore, especially because 2024 marks the 15th anniversary of JCC. Keeping this special year in mind, we are preparing a variety of exciting events to welcome everyone. So do keep a look out for them!

To kickstart the year, we will be holding our very first edition of JCC 15th Anniversary Talk Series on 10 January. We are honoured to invite Nobel Prize winner in Physics Professor Takaaki Kajita to share more about his research, findings, and milestones. You can certainly expect more to come in the Talk Series, also covering other Japan-related topics besides science.

Besides that, we will be organising an event all about Japanese rice for a second time. Families with young children can try their hand at making onigiri together, while other participants can learn more about the varying textures and flavours between different Japanese rice varieties, and even sample the differences for themselves. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

To stay in touch with our JCC15 activities, please follow us on our Facebook and Instagram! You may also follow the Embassy of Japan in Singapore on their Facebook page for the latest news and updates from Japan. Please join us in celebrating this memorable year!
