About

The history of the Swiss Club Tokyo began in 1974, when some Swiss embassy staff members first invited the local Swiss community to a garden party at the old embassy. The idea was to bring Swiss people together, establish contacts with newcomers, make friends, and exchange experiences. The party turned out to be a great success and the plan to establish a Swiss club in Tokyo was made.
Over the decades, the Swiss Club Tokyo has flourished and we currently count over 200 members between the ages of 1 to 85.

The purpose of our club is to provide a network for the Swiss residents in the greater Tokyo area and to promote and foster Swiss traditions and culture.
We realize this by organizing a variety of events throughout the year, striving to offer a diverse range of activities that suit the interests of members of all walks of live.
Whether you would like for your kids to experience a bit of Swiss culture or care about networking with like-minded people, this is the club for you.
