AJS Luncheon in Honor of Charge’d’ Affaires a.i. Mr. Jason P. Hyland

A farewell party was held in honor of Mr. Jason Hyland, who served as the US DCM (Deputy Chief of Mission) from July 2014 and as CDA (Chargé d’Affaires) of the US Embassy from January 2017. AJS was supported by Mr. Hyland in various occasions, especially at the 100th centennial ceremony held in April. Mr. Hyland talked about his interest, experience and hobbies during his term in Japan. His speech became replete with conversation because Mr. Hyland politely answered to the questions from the floor. At the end, Mr. Hyland allowed us to take pictures while conversing with every participant in the beautiful garden under the sun. Representing the society, Honorary President Okawara and President Fujisaki handed Mr. Hyland a certification of thanks and the souvenir.
