Tour of Japan
Dr. Seitaro Nomura, Asahi Club president in 1920, served as a Vancouver City Senior Amateur Baseball League official in the early 1920s. The Asahi Club's prominence in the city was reflected in the role Dr. Nomura and Mrs. Nomura, his wife, played in league events with Vancouver's Mayor Gale and Consul Ukita of Japan.
