Every two years, COPANI (Convention of Pan American Nikkei) is the destination conference for international Nikkeis – Japanese descendants – from all across the Americas, bringing together hundreds of people from over 14 countries. In 2019, we are honored to host the 20th COPANI in San Francisco. The hub of the tech industry, San Francisco is also known for its rich and diverse history, nicknamed “the Paris of the West” and home to one of only three remaining Japantowns in the United States. We cordially invite you to join our conference to experience this one-of-a-kind event!
