The Nikkei Hotel Association hosted its annual general meeting at Maneki Restaurant last night. In the first section, Yoshiichi Tanaka opened the meeting with a greeting and President Fujii gave a New Year’s greeting after guests were introduced and Taniguchi, secretary, called out the names of members. Taniguchi and Hori reported the activities of the association and Treasurer Hirano also updated its account situation.

After all approved the reports, the dinner began with a toast by Takemitsu Kubota, an advisor of the organization. A Fire Department inspector also presented recent updates and gave some cautions for the real estate business.
