The Journal The Authority on Global Business in Japan

Marking 70

The Coriander Room at Grand Hyatt Tokyo was filled with celebratory spirit on October 16 as nearly 200 American Chamber of Commerce in Japan members and guests gathered to celebrate 70 years of rich history and look toward the ACCJ’s next 70 years.

US Ambassador to Japan William F. Hagerty IV spoke about the importance of the chamber to US business in Japan, and the Honorable Akimasa Ishikawa, parliamentary vice-minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, led the kampai, toasting members of the ACCJ in recognition of the milestone.
