Charitable Work
Fundraising and charity work is a major undertaking of the Women's Group. With an estimated ¥25 million raised and distributed to charitable projects around Japan each year, the group is integral in helping the Club maintain its status as a government-sanctioned non-profit organization. The diversity of its ongoing work helps foster strong ties to the local community and provides those in need with hope and support.

Leadership
The group is led by an annually elected board of 13 members, who help organize all events and programs with the help of committee chairs, coordinators and sub-committee members. All Women's Group members are invited to contribute fresh ideas and take an active role in the organization's leadership.

Classrooms
Five gracefully appointed rooms, each named after influential women in Japan, host recreational and more than 100 cultural classes, programs and workshops organized year-round by the Women's Group and other Club users. The takeaway food counters at the family-friendly Rainbow Café are just upstairs for a quick bite between enlightening sessions.
