    Japanese-speaking night!

    Farewell to the Nippon Club

    Join us for another Japanese-speaking night. Hone your Japanese skills and meet new friends over a relaxed dinner on Wednesday 23 July.

    These evenings are always popular with members of JET Alumni Association (JETAA), the Japanese Society of Sydney and AJS-NSW members, but anyone is welcome so bring your friends.

    All levels are welcome - don’t worry if you are just a beginner of Japanese language, this practice session will definitely assist you.

    Great Japanese food is included in the price with drinks on your own account.

    Due to the closure of the Club this is the last event at this venue. Join us to say 'arigato' to this Sydney institution... and remember from 6pm it is Japanese speaking ONLY!

    Registrations are now open. Click here for online registration and payment, or download the form and send a cheque.

    Sake, or nihon-shu, is making inroads into the Australian beverage market.  More and more Australians are trying it and liking it.  But for many of us, our enjoyment is constrained by lack of knowledge and confidence. Our master class will fix that!

    Sample the product of five different breweries – the youngest of which is a mere 97 years old.  Guided by Yukino Ochiai of Deja Vu Sake, find out what makes each sake unique, and learn the vocabulary that will help you explore this essential element of Japan’s culture.

    This is a sit-down event, with food to complement the different sakes, prepared by Sapporo Restaurant.

    Yukino Ochiai and her husband Andrew Cameron established Déjà Vu Sake in 2012 to supplement their existing fine wine distribution business.  Yukino, Japanese-born and Australian-educated, takes an evangelical approach to spreading the word about sake.  She works imaginatively and tirelessly with the food and beverage trade to get the message out.  Her expertise and her enthusiasm make a powerful – and enjoyable – combination.

    To read more about the sake brewers to be featured at the Master Class, click www.dejavusake.com.au .

     Bottled sake will be available for sale at the end of the event (cash only).

    Registrations are now open. Sign up and pay securely online, or use the form with credit card or cheque.
