October 28, 2014

The Japan Foundation presents the KAKEHASHI Project - The Bridge for Tomorrow as a part of the Youth Exchange Program with North America promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan (MOFA). For two years from 2013, the KAKEHASHI Project has given and will give 4,600 young people, including Japanese and U.S. students, an opportunity to go to the U.S. or come to visit Japan.

In November 2014, a total of 150 university students, selected throughout Japan, will be dispatched to various locations in the U.S. The sixth group of Japanese students will stay there for 10 days. During the stay, they will interact with U.S. students and visit local companies, to make presentations on diverse culture, traditions and social system of Japan from the viewpoint of students so that people in the U.S. become more interested in Japan. They will also visit an elder care facility and the Japanese communities to deepen their understanding of the U.S.
