There was a change of association officers held during the important meeting last
June 6, 2018.

Rainy Season in Japan

In Japan, there is a rainy season called “TSUYU” where we especially have a lot of rain. We usually experience this season for one month and a half from June up until July.
During this period, we might feel that our physical condition weakens due to high humidity and high temperature. We should be careful of food poisoning as well.

If you have any questions at Ward Office, the dispatching service of interpreter volunteers are available to assist you. The service is free of charge in six different languages such as English, Chinese, Korean, Tagalog, Spanish and Portuguese.
There are some conditions for using this service and please feel free to ask our association for more details.

As soon as Golden Week is over, the early summer weather is in the corner. Our association encourages an attempt of wearing no-tie and no-jacket as “Cool Biz” from May to October. During this period, we, all staff, wear light clothing at the reception as well. We ask for your consideration.

“Tachibana Ancient Hill Greenery” is the site of an ancient public office located in the present Chitose, Takatsu-ku. The ancient (during the 7th to the 10th Century) ruins are designated by the national government.
