On 15 December 2020, JCCI Singapore Foundation celebrated its 30th anniversary and conferred sponsorships for S$252,000 to 18 projects and events in the fields of arts, culture, sports and education for 2021. In the opening address, Chairman Mr Yoshihiko Ishigaki expressed his sympathy towards the local community affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. On behalf of the Japanese business community in Singapore, out of the its usual mandate, JCCI Singapore Foundation committed an extraordinary donation for  S$100,000 to The Invictus Fund – set up by the National Council of Social Service and administered by the Community Chest. This fund enables social service agencies to continue delivering critical services to the vulnerable during the pandemic. 

Sponsored Project – YMCA SPECIAL NEEDS INCLUSIVE CHALLENGE 2021

This campaign empowers people with special needs to raise awareness for their own cause. Through this, YMCA hope to show that special needs can achieve the same target distance as any of us! In addition, this campaign seeks to raise awareness among the public, by getting them to participate alongside with YMCA’s special needs participants and raise funds for their special needs regular programmes (sports activities & hospitality training).

On 27 February, JCCI Vice-President Ms Noriko Gunji joined Singapore President Halimah Yacob at the Istana for a flag-off ceremony and the walk & hike launch.

We are honoured to be part of this meaningful project! Check out YMCA’s website for more details https://fuji.ymca.org.sg/

Victoria Theatre

Video-on-Demand (VOD)

Tickets on sale soon

A famous Japanese legend of revenge, horror and romance gone wrong is reimagined in OIWA – The Ghost of Yotsuya.  Based on blood-tingling real-life events and historical figures from the Edo period, the tale of Oiwa – a jilted wife who haunts her murderer – continues to reverberate through its countless adaptations.

Now, one of Singapore’s leading theatre companies The Finger Players retells this timeless tale through innovative ensemble of puppeteers and actors.

Actors simulate the movements of puppets, while shadowy puppeteers manipulate these human puppets, fusing techniques inspired from traditional Japanese performance techniques – Bunraku and Ningyo Buri.

We are proud to be one of the sponsors of this performance! Please visit sifa.sg for more info.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its
layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of le tters, as opposed to
using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web
page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many
web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes
on purpose (injected humour and the like).
