This year marks the 35th year since the inception of the Japan Club of Guam. Throughout the years, the Japan Club of Guam has become a vital and devoted member of the community; making substantial contribution and participating in numerous charitable and cultural events on Guam.

Our most significant event, the annual Japan Autumn Festival (“Akimatsuri”) has evolved to become one of Guam’s most reputable cultural gathering, where visitors of all ages are presented with a traditional Japanese Festival including entertainment from Japan and locally and treated to a variety of Japanese cuisine and amusing games for the children.

This celebration has become the main venue where the local residents and the Japanese community come together as one, to bond and enjoy each other’s presence.

On Saturday, November 22, 2014 we will be celebrating the 35th Annual Autumn Festival at the Governor Joseph Flores Beach Park (Ypao Beach Park).

This will be an excellent opportunity to experience firsthand the spirit of the Japan Club of Guam through the festivities of the “Akimatsuri”.
