KIMOCHI REMAINS COMMITTED TO OUR SENIORS
A Message from the Executive Director
Happy Thanksgiving! On behalf of Kimochi,
I wish the happiest of holidays to you and your
families.
Kimochi Inc. has provided a range of
culturally sensitive programs and services for
San Francisco seniors and their families that
help our elderly live with dignity and independence since 1971.
We offer a range of in-home, residential and social day programs,
including information and referral, social services, Japanese
meals, transportation, and health and consumer education.
From July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008, Kimochi provided 92,513
meals; for the same twelve month period in 2009, we provided
95,124 meals – an increase of 2,611 meals from the previous year.
This summer, Kimochi was notified of an immediate $100,000 cut
in funding from San Francisco’s Department of Aging and Adult
Services. Your donation of $100 buys 10 meals.
and changes in the health conditions affecting seniors. Japanese
Americans living in Bay Area communities surrounding San
Francisco are looking to Kimochi to assist in serving seniors and
their families. Eight focus groups, comprised of seniors from
throughout the Bay Area, provided plan input. Participants clearly
value Kimochi’s brand, programs and community contribution.
Despite the funding cut, Kimochi remains committed to
delivering nutritious lunches to all seniors who come to us
and providing the transportation services, residential and
respite care, adult social day care and social services that
3,000+ Bay Area seniors and their families rely on.
Overarching strategic approaches emerging from our planning
work include:
We are working to absorb the budget cut over multiple programs
and staffing, but a reduction of this magnitude cuts deeply. We ask
for your help: $50 can provide 25 nutritionally balanced meals;
$100 provides ten one-way
trips on our wheelchair-lift
equipped ADA accessible vans;
$500 provides one senior with
three days of 24-hour respite
care at Kimochi Home, our state
licensed residential care facility.
•Immediate and energetic leveraging of the Sansei generation
that founded Kimochi to secure Kimochi’s long-term health and
capacity to serve future generations.
Our Strategic Plan was
undertaken during this time of
severe economic recession, with budget crises
at both the state and local levels challenging all
community-based social service providers and the
nonprofit community as a whole. That looming
crisis has shadowed our work. The impetus
for the plan comes from change – changes within the Japanese
American community, changes in how people are choosing to age
•Consideration of strategic partnerships with other for-profit and
nonprofit entities serving the Japanese American community as it
shifts and changes.
•Careful use of Kimochi reserves for expansion of existing
programs and/or research and development of new programs
to serve the aging Sansei generation, including Alzheimer’s and
dementia services, education and assistance regarding health,
nutrition, and legal; and financial planning related to the end
of life.
•Expansion to nearby counties, beginning with San Mateo County.
Thanks to your support, Kimochi, Inc. remains a vital community
leader, serving seniors with compassion and respect. We plan to
diversify our resource base, service area and programs in order to
reach the communities, individuals and families that need it.

ARCHITECT IS SELECTED
H&Y Architects Is Selected To Oversee The Kimochi Home Renovation Project
When Kimochi, Inc. initiated its Kimochi Home Renovation
Capital Campaign, we knew it would be important to retain
professional assistance in updating our rooms and furnishings
after 25 years of use. We decided upon a firm that has a proven
track record of building and designing for us, H&Y Architects.
They helped to design and build our 1715 Buchanan Street Site
where we continue receiving compliments on how beautiful and
welcoming the site is for our clients and families.
About the firm and staff...
Established as a firm in November 1988, H&Y Architects, Inc. is
a privately held Corporation engaged in providing professional
architectural services. Kenneth Yamamoto is the sole principal
of the firm. He is a graduate of California State Polytechnic
University and the University of California at Berkeley receiving
architectural degrees from both institutions. H&Y has handled a
diverse range of projects including hospital and medical facility
work for Kaiser, and the Veterans Administration, retail store
facilities for Target Department Stores, office planning for various
agencies and Housing Modernization Projects for various Housing
Authorities.
We are in the final stages of selecting colors and furnishings for
the common areas and private rooms. Our timeline is to begin
painting in the next few months followed by installing new
carpeting and new furnishings throughout the building. We hope
to be done by next spring when the seniors can enjoy a more
updated, comfortable and warm place to call “home.”

CLUB NIKKEI Kimochi’s Exciting New Program
It’s CLUB NIKKEI!!! It’s our club for our active and independent
seniors – a way to provide them the opportunity to get out and enjoy
life without having to worry about such things as driving or someone to
go with. Our committed staff and committee members put their hearts
and souls into planning a variety of group activities for seniors to enjoy,
as well as providing a safe and fun social environment. The club enjoys
activities such as dinners, brunches, shopping, festivals, fairs, exhibits,
shows, sport events and concerts. We’ve even gone bowling and hit a
few casinos! We also have the pleasure of planning overnight trips or
“mini vacations” as well! Our past
overnight trips have been to Monterey/
Carmel and Yosemite. As Club Nikkei
grows, it is our goal to expand the scope
of activities to meet the needs of our
seniors, regardless of age and/or gender
– whether 60 or 100, male or female!

FUNDRAISING EVENTS
A New Face on “Sansei Live!”
“This year was the most challenging Sansei Live! in recent years,”
notes Executive Director, Steve Nakajo, referring not only to the
tough economic climate for fundraising but the new face being
put on Sansei Live! “The Sansei Live! Planning Committee did
a fantastic job in both planning and adjusting to last minute
changes. We have heard many positive comments from the
guests and entertainers.”
recently released mixtape titled The Lyrics Born Variety Show:
Season Pho (4!). The mixtape comes as he finishes up his fourth
studio album, As U Were. Sharing the Sansei Live! stage was
ScoJourners, including members Skitz the Samurida, Estairy,
Curt Sak, An Na and Max, who are all San Francisco born and
raised and who have been making music together since 2001.
The night’s entertainment also included
performances by Michelle Martinez, R&B/
Pop vocalist, and returning Sansei Live!
favorite, EXPO, one of the few bands to
feature a three-piece horn section that
mixes soulful love songs and Latin rock.
DJ John Jow kept the music flowing.
This year’s Sansei Live! was
celebrated on October 17
at the Presidio Officers’
Club in the San Francisco
Presidio. What was different
this year was a re-dedicated,
more purposeful focus on
appealing to a younger
generation and introducing
them to Kimochi. The Sansei
Live! Planning Committee
Co-Chairs, Amy Sujishi and Eric Kobuchi,
led the committee to pull tighter reins on the
event and entertainment. “We tried some new
things this year, especially in our program,
to draw a crowd of 30-45 year olds to whom
Sansei Live! was originally designed to
appeal – to introduce
a younger group of
people to Kimochi
and their community,
to emphasize the
responsibility of
philanthropy, all while
proving you can have
a great time doing so,”
says Kobuchi.
In this economic climate, the Planning Committee
was braced for tough ticket sales. So they innovated
with some fresh ideas for fundraising and
outreach, using their social networks and
face-to-face meetings to get the word out
among their friends and selling tickets.
Special thanks go to Ted Fang, Angela
Pang and Tamiko Wong of the AsianWeek
Foundation for arranging the first Sansei
Live! pre-event at the J.W. Marriott in Union
Square to promote Kimochi
and Sansei Live! to younger
professionals and using their
e-mail database to promote the
event. In addition, numerous
committee members and
volunteers worked to pull off an
exciting evening.
As a result, we nearly had a
full house and Sansei Live!
raffle tickets sold out for the
first time. Kimochi came close
to matching last year’s total pre-event
sponsorship, advertising and straight
donation amount. This re-vitalization
of Sansei Live! is just a start and a
demonstration of the positive change
emerging from new, young faces of
Kimochi. Their dedication, new ideas and energy to Sansei Live!
was inspiring and very appreciated. We look forward to their
continued involvement for Sansei Live! 2010.
Foremost, was
securing the white-hot talent of Hip
Hop’s Lyrics Born as the evening’s
audience-drawing headliner. Lyrics
Born is Tom Shimura, born in Tokyo,
Japan, and raised in Tokyo, Salt Lake
City and Berkeley, California. He is a founding
member of the seminal, independent record label,
Quannum Projects. As an Asian American rapper, Lyrics Born
is redefining the face of independent hip-hop. His career spans
the 1996 release, The Album, to 2008’s Everywhere at Once, and

PLANNED GIVING
Legacy Society
Members of Kimochi’s Legacy Society would receive:
Since 1971, Kimochi has continued to serve as a resource for
the Community by providing programs and services for our aging
seniors. Several families have already recognized the importance
of Kimochi’s mission by naming Kimochi as a beneficiary of their
estate. For these special supporters, we are pleased to announce the
creation of Kimochi’s Legacy Society, for donors who have made
planned gifts to Kimochi.
• Recognition in Kimochi’s administration building with other
members of the Legacy Society.
• An invitation to an annual Legacy Society event.
• Periodic updates from Kimochi’s Executive Director.
• Priority notification and registration to future estate
planning seminars.
You can become a member today by informing us that you have
made a planned gift. A planned gift can be as simple as naming
Kimochi as a beneficiary of your will or trust. There are also many
ways that you can make a planned gift to Kimochi and receive a
lifetime income and tax-benefits in return, such as naming Kimochi
as the beneficiary of a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.
• Recognition in our newsletter.
A planned gift to Kimochi does more than recognize the
importance of Kimochi’s mission today. A gift in your estate also
supports Kimochi’s vision for the future needs of seniors in our
community.
If you would like more information on how to make a planned gift to Kimochi, or have already done so,
please contact Scott Ito, planned giving manager, at (415) 740-4004 or [email protected]
$10,000 Donation to Kimochi, Inc. In Memory of Dr. Tokuji & Haruye Hedani
The children of Dr. Tokuji and Haruye Hedani presented a $10,000 contribution in their memory to Kimochi, Inc. The Hedani
children are: Janet Hedani Yip (husband, Steven Yip; daughter Carrie); Barbara Hedani-Morishita, (husband, Dr. Leroy Morishita;
sons Kyle & Derek); Dean Hedani (wife, Melanie; children Tamari, Dustin & Austin).
They made the following comments:
“Dad’s optometry office was on Fillmore Street and both our parents were very
active in various community organizations in Japantown. They instilled in all of
us the importance of volunteering and supporting community service agencies.
We miss them very much and know they would be very pleased that we are giving
back to the community by this donation to Kimochi.”
– Janet Hedani Yip
“Kimochi is more than a place to stay or a place to eat. The staff and employees
treat you like good friends and family and sincerely care for you.”
– Dean Hedani
“After Mom passed away we had to come up with a 24/7 care plan for Dad.
Maintaining him at home was our goal and we relied on several of Kimochi’s
programs to make this possible, such as referral services, transportation, daycare,
in-home services, and home-delivered meals. As adults live longer, we see it is
important to maintain an organization like Kimochi, especially in today’s
difficult times.”

As exemplified by the children’s comments, Kimochi’s overall philosophy is to provide the appropriate culturally sensitive,
community-based long term care services to keep seniors in their homes, apartments, or neighborhoods.
Representing the Board of Directors, Board Treasurer Mark Moriguchi, expressed his gratitude to the Hedani family for their
generous donation to the organization.

MR. AKITOSHI TAKAZAWA RETIRES FROM KIMOCHI, INC.
29 Years of Service and Dedication
On July 29, 2009, Kimochi board, staff, volunteers, and seniors held a special retirement program for head
cook, Akitoshi Takazawa, celebrating 29 years of service to our organization.The Nutrition Program was
brightly decorated in yellow. Takazawa-san assisted us in planning and preparing a five week menu providing
nutritious, healthy, well balanced Japanese style hot lunches five days a week for over 300 seniors a day at
our senior center. For individuals who are physically unable to travel to the site due to a disability, illness,
or recent hospital discharge, hot meals were provided to seniors at their homes. Approximately 120 lunches
continue being delivered daily to homebound seniors living in Japantown, the Western Addition, Sunset, and
Richmond districts of San Francisco.
Executive Director Steve Nakajo was the emcee and highlighted Mr. Takazawa’s long cooking career with our
organization where he has prepared over 2.5 million meals for 30,000 seniors! What an accomplishment! He
has trained and worked along side 100’s of volunteers and a dedicated team of cooks to provide seniors from
all over San Francisco with a delicious, nutritious, Japanese style hot lunch. We are the #1 senior meal site in town! Assembly member
Tom Ammiano, representing the 13th District, sent a special certificate congratulating Takazawa-san for his service. He also received a
retirement gift from the agency and an “honorary” gold card so he can eat lunch at Kimochi for a lifetime! The program ended with a
special “kampai” celebratory toast followed by cake enjoyed by all the nutrition participants.

KIMOCHI, INC. SERVICE DIRECTORY
Kimochi, Inc.: Continuing Generations Of Caring
generation Japanese Americans) were unable to take advantage of
mainstream social services. In response, the Sansei volunteers began
looking for ways to assist the older generation, and Kimochi, Inc.
was born. Today, Kimochi, Inc. provides care and support to more
than 3,000 seniors and their families throughout San Francisco.
Since 1971, Kimochi, Inc. has developed and promoted an
intergenerational philosophy of care for seniors and families. The
word “kimochi” means “feelings” in Japanese. For our organization
it refers to our feelings for our older generations. We began when
a few Sansei (third generation Japanese Americans) realized that
because of language and cultural barriers, many elderly Issei (first

to help families develop the skills necessary to perform caregiving
activities.
Administration
Kimochi, Inc. moved to this site in February, 1999. The building is
owned and operated by the agency and houses our administrative
staff. Counseling rooms and the Henri and Tomoye Takahashi
Board/Conference Room are available on-site for staff and agency
use. Anyone interested in volunteering, can come and talk with our
staff and learn about the many volunteer opportunities available
throughout the agency. We have approximately 250 volunteers
assisting us each year in our program areas.
Kimochi joined the Transitional Care Network in 2007 and
collaborates with San Francisco Senior Center and other agencies
in the partnership to coordinate Homecoming Services for seniors.
The program targets isolated seniors who are being discharged from
acute care hospitals who could benefit from more communitybased care and support as they transition home.
Club Nikkei
Club Nikkei is a new membership based program for targeted
seniors in our community. It is designed to outreach and attract
healthy, independent seniors who are interested in joining a group
for exciting overnight trips, dinners, and activities. Staff plans
quarterly calendars and all transportation for excursions is provided
by our transportation program. We have added this important
service to provide more fun social and recreational opportunities
for our seniors to enjoy.
Social Services Program
Kimochi’s Social Services program offers a variety of support
services for seniors, their families, and friends. Social workers and
case managers are on staff to provide Japanese and Korean language
translation, information and referral, naturalization assistance,
counseling, assistance with insurance and government benefits,
seminars and workshops on aging, as well as advocacy for the
elderly. Support groups to address topics on aging are also available.
Social workers also help seniors and families in locating, hiring,
and retaining providers to help with personal care and household
chores. Case management services are also an important part of this
program to help clients and families identify additional resources to
keep seniors at home and independent for as long as possible. This
is a fee-for-service program.
Home Safety Service
Partially supported by a grant from the Asian Pacific Fund, Kimochi
now offers a home safety program for senior homeowners and
renters in San Francisco. Staff conducts home safety assessments
and helps seniors identify potential and existing safety issues that
could compromise their ability to live safely and comfortably at
home. Staff can assist and provide smoke detectors, stair strips,
and other items free of charge. We have also compiled a referral
list of contractors, electricians, and plumbers who can help seniors
in maintaining and repairing their homes. Let us assist you in
remaining at home and independent!
The program also provides Family Caregiver Support Services.
This service targets spouses, siblings, and children who are actively
involved in caring for a senior and provides them with counseling
services, family caregiver support groups, assistance with hiring
caregivers to help the family, and 24 hour respite care placements.
We also offer family caregiver training in both Japanese and English

The Kimochi Lounge, located within Japan Center, is the agency’s
original site. Seniors come to “the lounge” to catch up on
community news and socialize. The site also houses a book and
video library where seniors can check out materials for free. In
2007, a new senior information and resource section was added to
have important health, safety, nutrition, and caregiving resources
available for seniors and families. In July 2009, we opened the lounge
for seniors and families on Saturdays. Please drop by and visit!
