The NCJSC is an all volunteer
educational organization founded by John M. Yumoto
(among others) in the early 1960's, and was incorporated as a nonprofit
educational organization in June of 1976. Though
based in California's San Francisco
Bay Area, our membership spans the United States,
and the world. Each August we host the
annual San Francisco Token-Kai,
recognized as one of the finest "Japanese Sword Shows" in the United States.
Our newsletter "To-Ron"
is published monthly, and mailed to our membership approximately one
week before our meetings.
Now taking reservations for
the 2022 Token-Kai
