November 2, 2017 - Ichimokukai ・一木会

We're drawing ever closer to the end of the year, but there's still time for one last Ichimokukai before Bounenkai 2017.

Ichimokukai (IMK) literally means the "first Thursday meeting" and since 1995 it has been the Canada Japan Society of Toronto's monthly social event, naturally on the first Thursday of every month. It is a great place to make new friends, practice your English and/or Japanese, informally network, learn more about life in Canada and Japan, and most of all have fun! Our attendees are usually around 50 percent Canadian and 50 percent Japanese, all with a common interest or connection with Japan. At IMK you will receive special food and drink discounts, get to talk to lots of interesting people, and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.

We hope to see you there and please come early to ensure a good seat!

November 15, 2017 - CJS Axe Throwing

It's Canada 150 🍁, and what a better way to celebrate than to throw some axes?! Canada-Japan Society is organizing its 1st axe-throwing event!

This is a sport somewhat sort of remotely similar to throwing darts in the sense you want to hit the bullseye, except instead of darts, it's with axes, so it's waaaay more fun!! 😜
