On 2 May 2014, His Excellency, Mr. Haruhisa Takeuchi, Ambassador of Japan to Singapore, hosted a dinner reception at his residence in honour of Mr. Sekiguchi Masakazu, Senior Vice-Minister of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. Other distinguished guests who attended the reception were Mr. Seki Hiroyuki, Director-General of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr. Uemura Satoshi, Director of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr. Komaki Kentaro, Executive Secretary to the Senior Vice-Minister of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr. Adachi Masahide, Director of CLAIR Singapore and Mr. Takema Makoto, First Secretary of the Embassy of Japan in Singapore. JETAA Singapore enjoyed the privilege of being invited for this special occasion.

Mr. Takeuchi’s personal chef prepared a delectable 8-course Japanese dinner and most of the ingredients were imported from Japan. For dessert, Mrs. Takeuchi specially prepared the Strawberry Bavarois.

The guests had an enjoyable time chatting over a variety of topics. Mr. Sekiguchi also recommended a popular ramen chain, Hakata Fuuryuu (博多風龍) to the guests. There are about 20 branches in Tokyo serving up tasty tonkotsu ramen with each serving costing ¥550. Diners who are hungry can also request for two times of kaedama (refill of ramen) free of charge!

It was an enriching session for the Japanese officials and members of JETAA Singapore in exchanging views of Japan and Singapore, and group photos were taken at the end of the reception.
