Joining the club is simple and there are no annual dues. In order to receive our email communications, you need to officially join our email list which is maintained through the Google Group-Notre Dame Club of Japan. If you would like your email address to be added to the email list, please send an email to the Club Webmaster(see below for email address information) requesting that your name be added to the Club email list. If you have not heard from the Club Webmaster within one week of sending your email, please resend your email.

Once you have been added to this Google Group (i.e. Notre Dame Club of Japan), you will receive all Club email correspondence relating to upcoming events as long as your email address does not change. (If your email address does change, please notify the Club President if you are unable to update your email address information in this Google Group by yourself).

Notre Dame students who are participating in a semester or year in Japan are automatically members of the Notre Dame Club of Japan. They are expected to contact the Club president and have their email addresses added to the email list before they leave the United States. If Notre Dame students are studying in Tokyo, they are requested (but not required) to join Club events.

Whether you are just visiting Japan, or you plan to live here for a semester, a year, or even longer, if you are a U.S. Citizen the Embassy in Tokyo strongly recommends that “U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Japan enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates and makes it easier for the U.S. Embassy or the nearest U.S. Consulate to contact you in an emergency.”
