Working with the Foreign Commercial Service team at the Osaka Consulate, as well as in conjunction with the International Division of the Osaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (OCCI), nearly 50 Japanese importers and distributors were introduced to eight Hawaii companies seeking longer term distribution in the Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe) region and beyond.

Completely renovated two years ago, the Hankyu Umeda Main Store offers a tremendous venue to showcase Hawaii made products, hula and Hawaiian music performances from Wednesday, June 29 through Tuesday, July 5.
