NOTE: The NTHK Shinsa that was scheduled to coincide with this year's SF Token-Kai has also been canceled.


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.
