Warden Sir Jonathan Phillips visited Japan on the 14th of March, receiving a wonderful warm reception from over 30 Old Members and friends.  This was the first visit to Japan by a Keble Warden since 2006.  He was joined by Lady Amanda Phillips and Director of Development, Jenny Tudge.

The Warden hosted a drinks reception at Gakushikaikan in Tokyo, where he was delighted to welcome alumni from 1972 to 2012. The reception was organised by Yasumasa Nagamine (1978), deputy foreign minister and Keble Old Member. Visiting corporate supporters included Nippon Life, Mizuho, Mitsui and also the Oxford  Anagama project in Bizen.
