September Greetings

Welcome back! We hope you all had a pleasant summer break, and found ways to beat the heat. What better excuse to sample some of the innovative, unique kakigori on menus around Tokyo!

We’d like to extend a special welcome to one new member as well as two former members;
New members:
*  Saranniyaa (Sara) Balakrishnan (India) 
*  Keiko Amakawa (USA)
*  Nakako Nakasaki (Japan)
We look forward  to meeting them all at upcoming CWAJ events and volunteer activities.

The summer is a busy period for the Membership Committee, with many membership renewals to process. Thank you so much to those of you who have already renewed. Memberships expire every year on August 31, so if you have not yet renewed, please do so soon. More information about membership dues and payment instructions can be found on the members-only site (please note that you will need to be logged in to access the page): Should you have any questions about dues renewal, please let us know. 

We are grateful as always for your membership referrals. Please tell your friends about CWAJ! Encourage them to attend our upcoming Print Show, so that they can experience first-hand ways in which CWAJ is active in our community. Prospective members can contact us via the CWAJ website,, or email us directly at if they would like more information about becoming a member.

Finally, please be aware that the contents of the last printed membership Directory are only for 2021. In some cases, the contact details for individual members and CWAJ committees may have changed since then.

Please ensure you are using accurate member contact information by consulting the Members Only Page of the CWAJ website, where the contents are constantly updated.
