Unfortunately, due to the recent increase of COVID-19 cases, we have decided not to go ahead with our live beer gathering on July 20.
Our hope is now to resume physical events from September.


On a more positive note, with summer holidays upon us, why not enjoy some holiday in Japan?
France Travel Center has changed its business model, helping/advising resident foreigners in Japan to plan vacations within Japan this summer!
