Northern California Japanese Sword Club

The NCJSC is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the study and preservation of Japanese swords, related items and arts.

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 To-ken Taikai, 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.
