In November 2014, a total of 115 high school students selected throughout Japan will be dispatched to various locations in the United States.

For two years from 2013, the KAKEHASHI Project has given and will give 4,600 Japanese and U.S. students and young people the opportunity to go to the United States or come to visit Japan. The seventh group of Japanese students will be off to the U.S. for 10 days.
