KAKEHASHI Project: Japan-U.S. Youth Exchange Project 19 Japanese American Young Adults, Group 3 October 13 - 23, to visit Fukushima for tracing the history and roots of Japanese immigrants

September 30, 2014

The Japan Foundation has carried out Japanese American Young Adults Invitation Program since May 2014, as part of the KAKEHASHI Project - The Bridge for Tomorrow within the Youth Exchange Program with North America promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan (MOFA). The Program will invite a total of 100 selected Japanese American university and graduate students from all over the U.S. in three groups on separate schedules, and its third group, consisting of 19 members, will visit Japan for the ten-day tour, starting from October 13.

Participants will learn about the roots of Japanese Americans and their role on Japan-U.S. relations through visiting immigration related facilities and Japanese companies. They will visit Fukushima, a place widely known as home for Japanese Americans, and will experience farming and culinary exchange. They will thus deepen their understanding of Japan's attractiveness through the visit and exchange activities with local schools and residents.
