My name is Yukie Watanabe.
I'm doing internship at JASSW from July 24, 2013. I came to the US last year to go to Bellevue College.
I was born in Japan and raised Yokohama.
I graduated Toyo Eiwa University and I became a computer programmer in Japan. Now I'm in charge of developing their new web site.
I joined their events like Golf Tournament and Summer Social. I could meet many people through those events. JASSW has a lot of events to meet new people.
It would be my pleasure, if I could help our staff !

We had a 新年会or "new year gathering" at Kaname Izakaya in the International District on January 16. We had a good time with our friends and members surrounding an awesome Japanese food. So glad to have celebrated the New Year with them! Some of members came there with their internship students, who are studying international business. We hope they got a good opportunity to talk with many business people and exchange their intern experiences with other students.
Also, Thank you for joining to make a video message for the upcoming event “Shout out to Japan” which is the event for cheering victims of the Great East Japan earthquake at the Seattle Center on March 10th. We are working on this now. Please join this event too! We are also seeking volunteers!
Anyway, that’s a very good start of a year for us! Thank you everybody!
☆Good Day JASSW viewers☆
My name is Nicole Momoko Levy, and I just started working with JASSW today so yoroshiku onegai itashimasu. As you can tell from my name, I am of mixed Japanese decent, and I've come to offer JASSW my extensive bicultural understanding and experience (-of course I am sure JASSW help further it too! ^_^)
I graduated the University of Washington with a degree in International Studies: East Asian Studies, and studied abroad at Sophia University as well as Waseda University.
I look forward to connecting with all of you!
I came to Seattle for the internship at Japan America Society.
I was born and raised in Shiga, which was the country side of Japan. I graduated from high school at Kyoto and I am sophomore in Kyoto University of Foreign Studies.
I also belong to free guide club, in which members show the famous temples and shrines in Kyoto to tourists from foreign countries for free. So I know many amazing things of Japan, especially Kyoto. I am willing to tell a lot if you want to know of golden pavilion temple, Kiyomizu temple, and so on.
P.S The photo is after the guide at Ryoanji temple.

The journey to Boeing's infintessimally slow moving production line started in 19th Century Japan. Honed over years and exported a century later, the concepts of Just in Time, Oobeya, and Jidoka have drasically cut both labor and material costs, waste, and helped keep the private aerospace giant on even footing with its biggest competitor, a competitor with the backing of five European countries. Attendees workshopped their own Toyota Management System scenario between presentations from the new expert, Boeing, and the old, Toyota.
Please visit our facebook page for more photos of the event.
Business leaders in all Japan-related areas bring their colleagues and clients to an event which has been presented for over 50 years. Fresh yakisoba, golf in the height of summer, and a dinner and awards ceremony make this an excellent opportunity for networking, fun, and supporting the Society.
