About FEW Kansai

FEW was established to support foreign women in Japan, both professionally and socially. Being literally “few” in the world, FEW offers a friendly and supportive atmosphere to meet, network and find like-minded friends. From this idea stems our mission: “To provide a forum for networking, career development, knowledge and information exchange, support and friendship among foreign women living in Kansai."

    Holiday Fun with FEW

    Saturday, December 5, 2020

    7:00–8:30 PM

    On Zoom

    Register by midnight, November 22!

    Kick off the end-of-year celebrations by joining your friends at FEW Kansai for a unique and festive online event—decorating cookies while drinking mulled wine or apple juice with Kansai’s most fabulous women!

    A few days before the event, we will send you a Cookie Package containing items we purchased for the event—four gingerbread cookies from IKEA, cookie icing and sprinkles for decorating, and mulling spices (tea-bag type) to make spiced wine or apple juice (you provide the wine or juice).* On event day, we’ll all join up on Zoom and jump into a swirl of activity decorating the cookies (and eating them too!) while savoring the spicy scent and sweet taste of our mulled drinks and chatting up a storm. Throughout the evening, we’ll move in and out of small groups (breakout rooms) so we can talk with different people while maintaining a cheerful spirit of togetherness.

    You may participate in the decorating fun with the purchase of our Cookie Package or join the event without the Cookie Package if you just want to spend a fun-filled evening with friends (while munching on your own already prepared cookies if you wish!). The different event fees—with and without the Cookie Package—are shown below. We need time to put these delightful little packages together, so we’re asking that you register by midnight on Sunday, November 22.

    Event fee:

    Member (no Cookie Package):         FREE

    Member (with Cookie Package):       ¥2,000 (includes shipping)

    Nonmember (no Cookie Package):    ¥500

    Nonmember (with Cookie Package):  ¥2,500 (includes shipping)

    We are really looking forward to sharing the holiday spirit with you, so we hope to see you there!

    The FEW Kansai Board

    *Some of the food items in the package may contain allergens. For those who have food allergies, we would still love to have you join us, but you may want to forego the Cookie Package and bring your own cookies instead.
