    Keijuro "K.J." Matsui, CC'09

    Profile (Japanese): https://www.alvark-tokyo.jp/roster/keijuro_matsui.html

     

    KJ was the first Japanese native basketball player in NCAA Division I history, studying economics at Columbia College from 2005 – 2009. He also played in the 2005 Nike Hoop Summit for the World Select Team, being only the second Japanese native to do so. At the time, he was sometimes called the "Third Matsui" of NY, after Hideki Matsui (Yankees) and Kazuo "Kaz" Matsui (Mets). He has been featured in the New York Times and many Japanese newspapers. After graduating from Columbia, he began playing basketball professionally in Japan, and he was a part of the Japanese National Team in the FIBA ASIA tournament in '11, '13, '15, and '16.

    We hope that you can join us in cheering on him and his team. We will also get the chance to have dinner with KJ after the game at a nearby restaurant (TBD). We expect this to be a fun event for all ages, so please consider inviting your family along!

    SMBC/Promise Service Plaza, Sekiguchi Building

    Q&A with Ken Moritsugu

    The Columbia Lions Club of Japan (CLCJ), in coordination with the Columbia University Alumni Association of Japan (CUAAJ), would like to invite you to the first official CLCJ event of 2014. The event will be a presentation and Q&A session with Mr. Ken Moritsugu, who recently took over as the Japan Bureau Chief for The Associated Press. The event will start at 19:00 (reception begins at 18:30) on Thursday, February 6th, at SMBC/Promise Service Plaza in Shibuya (next to Yamada Denki). He has returned to Japan after some very unique experiences and will initially talk to us about the AP organization, as well as about some of his experiences working in many countries. I believe he will have some interesting insights into how norms for the media world vary in different cultures.  He will then open up for a Q&A session. We will move the event to a nearby restaurant (TBD) for further networking and dinner as the venue shuts down at 8pm. Mr. Moritsugu will be accompanied by his wife, Carmen, who may have some insights of her own. She is a Columbia University/SIPA graduate, as well as a Princeton graduate.
