February 19, 2015

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 March 2015, a total of 263 university students, selected from all over Japan, will be dispatched to the U.S. During their 10 day trip, the participants will interact with local students and visit companies. They will also make presentations on Japan’s charms of their region or strength in their field of expertise, from students’ point of view, in order to deepen understanding of Japan in the U.S..
