JET Alumni Enjoy Keizai’s Shinnenkai Party

Friend of JET Yoshi Manabe, Deputy Consul General Watanabe, and JETAANC Past President John Dzida

Good times and great networking at Keizai Society’s Shinnenkai Party! On January 31, JET alumni rubbed shoulders with local U.S.-Japan business leaders at the swanky affair at Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club. The night featured an inspiring keynote speech by Sony legend Nobuyuki Idei and a traditional Kagamiwari sake barrel breaking ceremony led by Consul General Watanabe. JETAANC Past President John Dzida, current President Mark Frey, Board member Sachiyo Kashihara, Deputy Consul General Watanabe, and long-time Friends of JET, Yoshi Manabe, Haj Matsukata, and Shannon Honda were among those in attendance.
