As this is an in-person event, we have worked with the Grand Hyatt Tokyo to ensure that the upmost level of safety measures are in place. Please see the list of precautionary measures which be taken below.

  • Temperature checks on arrival (must be below 37.5 degrees)
  • Mandatory mask usage except when eating or drinking
  • Social distancing (1.5 meters)
  • Sit-down dining instead of buffet-style dining
  • Social distancing encouraged to guests (1.5 meters) and by confirming the maximum number of guests that are safely accommodated in each banquet space and proposing an appropriate layout accordingly
  • Each elevator may be used by up to four guests at a time
  • Hand sanatizing and sanitization of high-touch areas in the banquet spaces using a high-grade disinfectant
  • Associates are wearing masks, conducting temperature checks before work, and gloves are being worn by all culinary associates when preparing and plating dishes
  • The air conditioning and circulation in the banquet room always takes in 100% of its air from outside

Please note that there are limited seats available at this event, and it will be first come first served. For anybody who is unable to join, and has a message they would like us to pass on to the Ambassador, please contact the BCCJ team at [email protected]
