JASH Corporate members and guests gathered in the 3rd floor Luxury Room of the DFS Galleria Waikiki on Thursday, April 14 for a Hawaii 5:01 hosted by DFS Hawaii.

JASH Chair and DFS Group Vice President Ms. Sharon Weiner welcomed attendees to the Galleria and thanked all for their continuous support of the Soceity. Attendees were then treated to delicious pupus and drink provided by Kahala Caterers while enjoying traditional Japanese music performed by Ms. Yumiko Uyeno and Ms. Ayako Riggs on koto and Mr. Stanley Kawaguchi on shakuhachi. Later, three lucky individuals were recipients of a $50 DFS gift card, courtesy of a DFS Hawaii prize drawing.

Attendees also took the opportunity to shop around the Galleria and discover the wide range of retail items available tax-free on the 1st and 2nd floors. The 3rd floor Luxury Room is designated for Duty Free shopping where an international boarding pass is required for purchases.
