Admiral Togo Shrine Tour and Lunch Discussion at Suikokai (Harajuku)

Connecting those who have served in Japan.

Admiral Togo Shrine Tour and Lunch Discussion at Suikokai (Harajuku)

November 4, 2017 , 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Did you know that in Tokyo’s Harajuku district there is a shrine dedicated to the spirit Admiral Togo, Japan’s hero from its 1905 victory over Russia? Wonder how a mortal man earns his own shrine? What is the connection between this history and thinking within today’s JMSDF? Do you know about Suikokai, an organization dedicated to conducting research, supporting the JMSDF and honoring those who have served Japan at sea?

This Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP outing is designed to help you understand these questions and their answers.

Details

We will meet in front of the Togo Shrine at 11 a.m. for a private English tour of the shrine and explanation of its history and significance with time to enjoy its superb gardens. Then we will move to the Suikokai Club building which is also located on the shrine grounds where we will enjoy a specially-prepared bento box lunch. Suikokai is a private organization promoting research activities related to maritime security. It also works on a wide range of activities which honor and support the Maritime Self-Defense Force. Admiral Anzai (JMSDF, retired), President of the Suikokai will give a short presentation about the organization and answer your questions.

RSVP

This tour will be limited to 20 people, so a firm RSVP by email to info@ycaps.org is necessary. Spots will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis with a final RSVP deadline of Oct. 19.
