Undiscovered JapanVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Presentations and Reception
Are you planning to visit Japan for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo? The Japanese Government has set a target to draw 40 million inbound tourists by 2020. From Tokyo to Kyoto, sumo to kabuki, and ramen to sushi, there is a lot to enjoy for visitors of Japan. However, there is still much more to Japan that cannot be found in guidebooks.
Join the Asia Society Northern California Young Professionals Group (ASNCYPG) and young professionals from the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET) Alumni Association of Northern California, who have lived and worked in Japan, on Wednesday, September 27th for an in-depth look into some of the hidden gems of Japan in "Undiscovered Japan." This program will feature presentations from JET alumni who will introduce some of the amazing, but lesser-known sights and destinations in Japan. After the panel, enjoy food and alcoholic beverages with other attendees to meet and network with JET Program alumni and members of the Asia Society Northern California Young Professionals Group.
