TORRANCE — The 13th annual Japan Business Association/Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce business celebration will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Honda Collection Hall, 19988 Van Ness Ave. in Torrance.
The event will feature foods from Outback Steakhouse Torrance and Gonpachi restaurant from the Miyako Hybrid Hotel. Enjoy sake tasting as well as a complete array of libations.
There will be Japanese as well as Western community exhibits, entertainment and prizes. This year’s prizes include roundtrip airfare to Japan and a hotel stay at the Miyako Tokyo Hotel.
The event will also offer a first look at the Honda Collection Hall, which chronicles the growth of American Honda in the U.S.
“While the ongoing partnership between JBA and Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce has always been strong, its tremendous value needs to be recognized in particular this year, given the wonderful business community response to the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan this past March,” said Kazuhiko Hirohashi, chair of the JBA South Bay Regional Committee.
