"Blessing", by Shinoda Toko will return to the FCCJ on March 29th.

Shinoda-san, will celebrate her 106th birthday on Thursday, March 28, 2019.  This seemed the perfect time to celebrate the re-hanging of this stunning example of traditional Japanese calligraphy combined with modern abstract expressionism.  A large piece at 196cm X 380cm, the artwork will be permanently displayed at the junction of the main corridor leading to the Main Bar.

Over the years "Blessing" has been alternatively consigned to obscurity at the back of the banquet room in the Denki Building, or kept in storage.  Consequently, the artwork was in desperate need of repair.  The artwork has been restored at a cost of approximately JPY1 million by the Tolman Collection, whose founder, Mr. Norman Tolman, is a long-time associate member.

The reception begins at 1830hrs.  Governor Koike Yuriko has kindly agreed to perform the unveiling at 1900hrs.  Event will conclude at 2030hrs.

As this is an event for Members, with light refreshments, Members planning to attend are kindly asked to inform the reception desk (03-3211-3161), or e-mail that club at This email address is being protected from spambots.
