Thank you to all of the JASWDC members and friends of the Society who joined us at our 2022 Shokibarai 暑気払い summer networking event!

More than 150 friends of the Society gathered on June 29 for a fantastic evening on Greenberg Traurig’s rooftop terrace. We kicked off the event with remarks by our host, Pamela Marple, Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, and a toast by Office of Melissa Horwitz, Acting Director of the office of Japan Affairs at the State Department.

The event highlighted two stars of the Japan-cultural community in the National Capital Region, Sushi Taro, and North American Sake Brewery, as well as whiskey and shochu from our friends at Honkaku Spirits, and Japanese sweets by SUGOi Sweets.
