Dear Fellow Members,
As many previous presidents have surely felt and said, having the honor of being selected to become your president was never something I thought would happen. When I joined the Club, it was just to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, have a delicious meal and look out over the beautiful gardens while enjoying a drink with friends.
Actually one could say that having a drink together at the Kobe Club bar was the first date with my then wife to be. We had a wedding reception at the Club and then started a family. Our boys are growing up knowing the Club, enjoying the pool in the summer, and attending the wonderful kids events throughout the year. As I am sure it has been for many people in the area, the Kobe Club has always been and continues to be an important part of our lives.

What is the recipe for a successful Easter Party?
A hall full of excited parents and children. An energetic pink bunny bustling around the room. Plenty of fun activities and games for everyone! Beautiful and detailed Easter-themed decor. Haute cuisine meticulously prepared by Chef Kamiki. A smile on every single guest’s face! That was this year's Easter party!

On a warm and bright spring-like winter day, a Valentine’s event has come back to Kobe Club after two years!
I joined the St. Valentine’s Day Brunch with my wife Aya and 5-year-old daughter Nozomi.

At the end of January the now traditional Raclette dinner that was succesfully established some years ago by Andy Müller took place.
Nowadays, in French, raclette is at the same time the name for a cheese with a quite strong taste (manger de la raclette) and for a friendly gathering around said cheese (faire une raclette).

The Christmas Dinner held on December 25th was a great success with 38 people in attendance.
Most everybody appeared wearing something red; a red tie, a red dress or a Christmas scarf. Since I was one of the few without a Christmas color item, one lady kindly gave me her cute snowman bag charm.
