Aloha and welcome to the Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Hawaiʻi!
Since 1951, JCCIH has worked to make Hawaiʻi Island a better place to live, work, and do business through education, advocacy, and networking.
The business environment of Hawaiʻi Island is changing rapidly. The Chamber proactively addresses the challenges facing our business community. The Chamber supports economic opportunities and development of our island through our education, government affairs, and economic development committees and the collective voice of our members.
Our membership is the heart and soul of the Chamber. It is a tribute to our members, past and present, from small and large businesses, government agencies, non-profits, and volunteers that make this organization what it is today. By attending events, participating on committees, or volunteering to help, you help us build meaningful relationships while supporting our island community.
Thank you to our members for your continued support and involvement. We welcome new members to join our mission. We look forward to another great year.
Domo Arigato Gozaimasu!
