New CCCJ Members

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan welcomes our new members


Eric Fandrich
Born and raised in Toronto, I first experienced Japan when I studied piano pedagogy at the Suzuki Method Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto. I studied engineering and got an MBA in the US and a master’s degree at Keio University, where I investigated the Japan/U.S. trade conflict. At the Nomura Research Institute, I contributed to cross-border business development, global industry research and technology consulting for financial institutions, governments and industry worldwide. My current technology advocacy focus is on AI, geothermal power, batteries and mobility.


Hannah Arbour
I’m a Japanese Canadian born and raised in Tokyo. After studying economics at the University of Toronto, I assisted MUJI with their first flagship store launch in Canada. I later worked for Nippon Ham’s Canadian subsidiary in Vancouver to export Canadian meat products to Japan. Now I’m a client relations manager at Tokyo Orientations, assisting expats with their relocation to Japan. I joined the CCCJ because my father, a member for over three decades, made great connections and friends here and I wanted the same!


Noah Honch

I’m a project finance and energy lawyer at King & Spalding Tokyo. I was born in Saskatchewan, raised in Alberta, and studied in Canada (Lethbridge), the US (Harvard) and the UK (Oxford). Prior to law, I was an archaeologist specializing in archaeological science, with a focus on palaeodietary reconstruction and radiocarbon dating. I recently joined the CCCJ to connect with fellow Canadians and industry professionals based in Japan.


Darrin Hughes

I’m from Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’m a 1994 graduate of Holland College in construction technology and a licensed carpenter. I moved to Kobe shortly after the Hanshin earthquake and started making pre-built wood homes in a warehouse. I met Wilf Wakely on Rokko Island and he encouraged me to become a CCCJ member. I recently relocated to Okinawa to open another part of my construction business, but I look forward to meeting other members when possible.




Zenten Aikido (Andrew Leitch)

Zenten Aikido was founded in 2019 to help spread our love of aikido to children in international schools. We offer certification that is recognized worldwide from the Aikikai Foundation and we maintain strong relationships with top instructors worldwide. We guide our students to be physically capable at aikido and apply the lessons learned into other aspects of their lives. We hope to find a place in the CCCJ community to help us achieve these goals.



Funeral Support Services (Robert Hoey)

I’m the president/owner of Funeral Support Services Co. Ltd. I was born and raised in Ottawa and moved to Japan thirty years ago to work as an embalmer for a Japanese funeral company. I opened my own funeral company six years ago to serve the foreign community in Japan. I joined the CCCJ so I could connect with fellow Canadians.




San Group (Bruce Molander)
I’m with the San Group, sawmills and remanufacturing facilities, worldwide suppliers of lumber products. With last year’s purchase of the Acorn sawmill in Delta—a well-known name in the Japanese lumber world—we’ve added considerable volume and opportunities to bolster our presence here. We understand the importance of having boots on ground in our key market, and with my over three decades experience (ten years here), I’m excited to be back in Japan to strengthen our business and multi-tiered relationships.
