After almost a quarter of a century in post, Ian de Stains is retiring as Executive Director of the BCCJ. Join us for a luncheon designed to celebrate his tenure and to wish him well in his future endeavours.
As a BBC producer-presenter Ian was seconded to NHK in 1976. For four years he worked on radio and television programmes designed to introduce Japan and all things Japanese to the outside world. A number of these programmes were nominated for—and some won—international awards.
Over the last six years the McCann PULSE program of continuous investigation into people’s lives has focused on understanding the younger generations of mothers in Japan. Volume 7 of the “Real Mothers” study has just been launched and looks in-depth at the social media usage, recession buying habits and views of the future of Japan’s mothers of children fifteen years old and under. The event will look in detail at how today’s generation of mothers got where they are, what they think of their lives, their families and their purchase decisions.
Canada's oldest independent brewer (along with its Japanese importer) is launching Moosehead Lager, Pale Ale and Cracked Canoe in Japan. Canadians and Japanese fans of Canada are invited to come celebrate with a fun Beers for Books event on Thursday February 24 from 7 PM - 10 PM at BierVana in the Prudential Tower near Akasaka Mitsuke.
The Canada-themed night will include Canadian highlights on the big screen, a Canada quiz for prizes, and Canadian BEER--all for a great cause with Beers for Books. Sounds like fun, eh?

After the Crisis, prospects in Japan and the West look dim while Asia is booming, so everybody wants to sell and invest in Asia and China. A ‘wall of money’ is already hitting these economies, producing asset bubbles and fanning currency wars.
But will Asia be able to turn from the ‘World’s Workshop’ to the ‘World’s Engine of Growth?’
