From an internal JPM update:

[Yesterday's] town hall was followed by a casual reception, where the Japan team enjoyed more pizza and other refreshments while mingling with Dimon, Abdelnour and Harvey. Meanwhile, for J.P. Morgan in Japan, business as usual is back in full swing. Colleagues are meeting with clients, and markets are normalizing. And—in what Harvey described as "perhaps the most critical sign" of a return to normalcy—today the table tennis club resumed its regular practice schedule.
