The Sasebo Experience:  A Special Place, A Special Time, With Special Friends!

"Life is for one generation; a good name is forever." ~ Japanese proverb

Welcome to the Sasebo Alumni Association website. If you were ever a student, parent, teacher, or just someone who spent time in Sasebo, Japan, you've come to the right place.  Whether you were a Kahok and your colors were purple and white, or a Cobra with colors of red and black, or just a part of Sasebo, this is your Sasebo home!

When the time came for you to leave Sasebo, your friends, and the memories you'd made together, and you wondered if you'd ever get the chance to reunite with them, the answer is YES!

Since our beginning in 1999, this Association has been finding friends and classmates from Sasebo.  What began as a directory containing only a few names has now grown to nearly 500 found friends.  In 2000 we held the very first Sasebo Reunion, and we've been holding them ever since.  Those of us that have attended these reunions have experienced once again the magic that was shared by all in Sasebo.  For so many of us, these were the reunions that "weren't supposed to ever happen"...but they did!  And with your support, there will be many, many more such gatherings, and all the friendships that were so important to all of us will be renewed over and over again.  Our reunions are the "Welcome Home" party you've been waiting for.

So, if you're one of us, please contact us, and tell your friends to do the same.  Once you do, a member of our Association will respond and welcome you.  Also check out Vision Statement to learn more about our Association.  Visit Classmates to see a list of friends and classmates we have found.  And, of course, don't forget to tap into our Reunion and Announcements sections to learn about our upcoming reunion.

Welcome home to what we like to call the Sasebo Experience:  A Special Place, A Special Time, With Special Friends.
