Many contemplating joining the YSC may not be aware of all the special activities groups that we have to offer as part of membership in the club. Here is a listing of our groups with more information about them and what they do. Many will agree that they have made lifelong friendships through the club and these groups. Questions? Ask us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mahjong, aka Mah Jongg, is a popular Chinese game played with sets of tiles. Like many popular games, Mah Jongg has a small infinity of regional variations, from the Chinese prevailing wind system to the American Mahjong with special bingo-like scoring cards. Whether you are a seasoned player or an eager to learn member, we are excited to share this game with you! In this club we will have fun learning, teaching, and playing Mah Jongg as well as enjoying social time with new friends!
YSC LET'S GET COOKING
Chop Chop! Let's Get Cooking! This will be a fun Special Activities Club for us to gather and learn to make new dishes! We would love for volunteers that would enjoy teaching others a special dish you make! Maybe find a fun cooking class in the out in town? Ready to get cooking?
YSC GOLF CLUB
This club is for YSC spouses who are looking to enjoy social golf together. All levels are welcome!
YSC TREASURE HUNTERS
This group is to find friends to go treasure hunting with, share some fabulous new treasure cave you’ve found in Tokyo, or to simply share some pics of the fabulous treasure you’ve found (but please post where if you do this). For the newcomers, there are many shrine sales (flea markets) held every month in Tokyo. One of the best sites to check for upcoming markets is at https://bestlivingjapan.com/tokyo-antique-and-flea-markets/. If you are keen to head along to one of these fabulous shrine sales, chances are, someone else is too! So if you want a hunting buddy, post where and when you’re going, get together with old and new friends and follow your treasure map. ⚔️

YSC VOLUNTEER CLUB
This group is for sharing any and all information about upcoming volunteer needs on or around Yokota Air Base! Sometimes there is an unspoken need that you may know about, but no way to share it with those willing to pitch in and lend a hand, or perhaps information just isn't getting out. In the past, we've volunteered for the Yokota Post Office, The Pad Project, Yokota Cookie Crunch, the YSC Thrift Store, the Kanto Plains Special Olympics, stranded passengers at the Yokota PAX Terminal, among others.
ysc day trips
Like the other YSC special activity groups, all the events are member-driven. That means you organize what you want to do and where you want to go! So if you’ve had an itch to explore or visit somewhere for a day or further afield for a night or more, post it up, see who’s interested and let’s have a great year making new friends and exploring new places!
