Hacks & Flacks 2018

Hacks & Flacks 2018

The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan’s annual "Hacks & Flacks" party welcomed nearly 230 attendees, who celebrated the start of 2018 with colleagues from media, public relations and the government in a gala networking event.

FCCJ members and their guests, the Ambassadors of Germany and Greece, and Rep. Seiko Hashimoto, who delivered a keynote speech to kick off the upcoming Winter Olympic Games, gathered January 26 to toast the new year and the fortunes of all ahead.

Kind donations from Suntory, Bon sake and Ito-ya, as well as entertainment by a Lion Dance team supplied by ALSOK, set the mood for an evening of unprecedented professional exchange and socializing.

This event was the beginning of a series of targeted professional evenings that aim to bring together the FCCJ’s diverse interests and community more frequently and for mutual gain.

The next such evening under consideration is a "Tokyo 2020" night, in which Olympic athletes and the national sports, Games and team sponsors, local communities and venues, as well as the media and our membership, will come together to mine stories and make connections ahead of the blockbuster global event just two years off.

The Club thanks all who attended this event, welcomes tour feedback, and looks forward to see even more folks at the next Tokyo 2020 Night later this year.
