    Japanese-speaking night!


    A new tasty venue

    The closure of our regular venue has led us to find a new restaurant for our popular Japanese-speaking night. Join us for a relaxed dinner on Wednesday 15 October at  Daruma Japanese restaurant in Haymarket.

    The format will be the same as usual: set dinner in mixed small groups. Anyone is welcome, and the atmosphere is friendly. (Don't worry if you are rusty or a beginner - this practice session will be fun!)

    Join members of AJS-NSW, JET Alumni Association (JETAA), and the Japanese Society of Sydney and feel free to bring other friends.

    The price includes good Japanese food, with drinks on your own account. Remember from 7pm it is Japanese speaking ONLY!

    Registrations are now open. Click here to register and pay, or download the form and send a cheque.

    An evening with Matt Carroll - Chief Operating Officer and Executive Adviser  -

    Rugby World Cup Japan - 2019

    A special event with one of Australia's leading sports businessmen and administrators.

    The business of sport in Japan will be in the forefront over the next six years as Japan prepares to host two of the three biggest sporting events on the planet.

    Matt Carroll is the Chief Operating Officer of Rugby World Cup Japan 2019. He has an Order of Australia Medal for services to Rugby Union.

    2019 will be an historic year in sport, with the Rugby World Cup being held for the first time outside of the traditional rugby countries. As Executive adviser to RWC Japan 2019, Matt is responsible for the Master plan and a $300 million budget.

    Matt's career has been spent successfully managing the delicate balance between sport, governments and the corporate world. Highlights have included delivering the best Rugby World Cup in 2003 here in Australia to establishing the A League and restructuring the Super Rugby competition.

    Matt will have great insights into the story of the RWC 2019 so far and the inner workings and strategic implementation of not only RWC 2019 but also the business of sport in Japan.

    Just twelve months after the Rugby World Cup, Japan will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    Our Evening with Matt Carroll is a must for anyone who has an interest in sport and Japan, and would like to know more about the opportunities that may be available to Australian businesses in the exciting lead up to these huge events.

    Registrations are now open online, or download the form and post with a cheque.

    Inoue Yasushi Award and Film Night

    AJS is pleased to support the 8th Inoue Yasushi Award celebration. The Award is presented annually to an outstanding researcher in Japanese literature by the Inoue Yasushi Memorial Foundation.

    Inoue Yasushi (1907-91) was one of Japan's most popular postwar writers, known for his historical fiction set in Japan and western China. His novels Lou-Lan and Tun-huang (Dunhuang) received the Mainichi Art Award in 1960.

    The Inoue Yasushi Award for Outstanding Research in Japanese Literature in Australia and New Zealand was inaugurated in 2007. This annual award is for the best refereed journal article or book chapter published in English during the previous year by a researcher based in Australia or New Zealand.

    This year's event features a 2012 film based on a story by Inoue Yasushi - "Chronicle of My Mother-わが母の記" (in Japanese with English subtitles) and a performance by the Sydney Japanese choir.

    Entry to this event is free but registration is required. Register by email here. For details see the flyer.
