Welcome to the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce

About the HJJCC

The Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1949 by 45 young nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans). The chapter was created to fill a void left in the American Japanese community after WWII. The organization was founded on trying to build good citizenship among our young Japanese-Americans and to provide them with a medium of training for participation in worthwhile community-wide civic projects.

The HJJCC is open to men and women of any ethnicity from ages 21 through 39. Membership provides the opportunity to:

  • Develop personal and professional skills.
  • Establish business contacts and professional networks.
  • Participate in community service projects and social activities.
  • Learn about Japanese-American culture and heritage through various programs and the Cherry Blossom Festival.

For questions or further information, please call 949-2255 or send an email to info@hjjcc.com.

Odawara Jaycees Hosting


Dear HJJCC Members,

Thank you to all members who came out to our 3JC sister chapter events and assisted with driving.  They are all very grateful for meeting you and for the support during their stay.

During the dates of May 17th through May 21st, we have the privilege to host our last sister chapter group from Japan, the Odawara JC’s.

We are expecting another great turnout this year and look for to spending time with our brothers and sisters for the week of fun and activities.

We are reaching out to all our members to please join us in some of the events/activities with them again this year.
We are also in great need of volunteer drivers to and from all our events and ask if you can let us know right away if you are able to assist even if only on certain days.

Being a driver gives you great opportunities to bond with our fellow Odawara JC’s (Japanese speaking NOT required).

Please help us to strengthen our relationship with our sister chapters by coming out and participating in hosting and lets all have a great time together!

If you are able to assist us by being a driver please let me know via email at: international.relations@hjjcc.com as soon as possible.

We will also require RSVP’s if you wish to attend any of the events listed below so please let me know.  More details to come as they are finalized.
