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.

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.

Also on Sunday Winds for Hope raised money to buy instruments for students affected by the Earthquake-Tsunami in a glittering show of classical and Jazz musicians, from local groups to international figures. Ko-Ichiro Yamamoto, principal trombone Seattle Symphony, Toshiko Akiyoshi, jazz pianist and composer, Lew Tabackin, flute and tenor sax, and Eric Miyashiro wowed the near-capacity audience for a good cause.
We were honored to be a part of SeattleJapanRelief.org which presented "A Day of Remembrance, A Day of Preparedness, Day of Rebuilding" on the anniversary of the Great Tohoku Earthquake-Tsunami. Thank you you especially to the SeattleJapanRelief.org Advisory Council for producing this wonderful event that honored, educated, and commemorated.
