Our annual Autumn music event was held on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, under the title “An Evening of Music from Spain.” Sponsored by ID Holdings and Supported by All Nippon Airways, the in-person event was held in the Nippon Club building.

Beginning in the gallery space on the seventh floor of the Nippon Club building, guests enjoyed a Spanish-themed buffet dinner prepared by Nippon Club Chef Yasuoka, including seafood paella, pinchos, Spanish tortilla (omelette), pasta with squid ink sauce, and more.

Entertainment followed the meal in the Rose Room on the second floor. The master of ceremonies was Ms. Christina Maxwell. The event began with opening remarks by Mr. Akira Yamamoto, Vice President of the Nippon Club and Japanese Services Group Leader – Americas & US of Deloitte LLP.
