An informal meeting among the foreign steamship operator groups
convened in Yokohama. At that time, a similar group,
the Kobe General Shipping Committee, existed in Kobe.
The Yokohama group established the Foreign Steamship Committee,
the parent organization of JFSA, with its Secretariat located
in the Fukoku Seimei Building in Uchisaiwaicho, Tokyo.
Japanese member operators of the Kobe General Shipping Committee
withdrew from the organization.
The remaining foreign ship operators change the committee’s name
to the Kansai Foreign Steamship Committee.
The Foreign Steamship Committee and the Kansai Foreign Steamship
Committee merged. The Foreign Steamship Committee name was
retained, with its head office located in Tokyo and branches in the
Kansai region and Yokohama.
English name of the committee was changed to Japan Foreign
Steamship Association (JFSA).
