It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of a JETAASC legend, Nancy Kikuchi. Nancy was one of the founding members of JETAASC, and one of the first ever JETs -- back when it was called the Mombusho English Fellowship. She was a tireless advocate for the better of the relationship between Japan and America. She was our heart, our soul, our guiding light, and she is missed beyond words.

JETAASC is collecting donations in Nancy's name for the following non-profits: Little Tokyo Koban, Little Tokyo Service Center, and Japan American Cultural & Community Center. A portion of the funds will be for a funeral wreath.

Little Tokyo Walking Tour: 大成功!
IMG_1218We had a tremendous time on Saturday walking around Little Tokyo and learning about the secret (and not-so-secret) history of the place. Afterwards, many of us gathered at Oiwake for some delicious food, and reminisced about our times in Japan! All in all, great fun.

We've uploaded some pictures of the event, just to make you jealous. Check them out right here.
