Toasting with Champagne

History of Nagoya's Ball

The not-to-miss event for the expat community of Central Japan.

The Champagne Ball is a celebration of the international community in the Nagoya area and the cooperative relationship that exists, particularly among the USA, Canada and Japan. More importantly, the event honors (or honours) those individuals who give so much of themselves in the pursuit of making the region such a great place to live and work.

How it all began...

For many years, in late November, the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ), Chubu Chapter had been holding its Fall Ball. The event was always looked-forward to and well-attended by many of the area’s diverse international community. A chance for everyone to relax and let their hair down while at the same time experiencing an upscale evening in luxurious surroundings.

In 2004, the Tokai Japan Canada Society (TJCS) was established and began celebrating its anniversary with a similar gala event, also in late November.

Rather than compete with each other in the same community for attendees, the two organizations decided to team up and hold one big event together. Thus the Champagne Ball & Awards Evening was born in November 2006.
