 On-location Services by the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan (Newport News)

 November 22, 2008


 

 We had the on-location services by the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan in the gymnasium of the Newport News Japanese School. The event was very convenient for Japanese in this area, because they could renew their passport, register for overseas election, making it unnecessary to go to Washington DC.  According to staff members of the Consular Division of Embassy of Japan, almost 60 people take advantage of  the service annually. It exceeded 80 this year. In addition, a large number of people registered for overseas election.

 A used book fair and bazaar was also held by the Newport News Japanese School. Many people lined up before the doors opens at 9:30 a.m.

 

We held this event in the gymnasium of Newport News  Japanese Saturday School.

 

 

 

Five staff members of the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan left Washington DC in the early morning for Newport News.

 

 

As picture shows, the gymnasium was crowded with people .

This event  was a great success.

 

 

Many people look forward to coming to used book fair and bazaar every year.
