The Japan Foundation carries out 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). In March 2015, a total of 356 junior high and 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 ninth group of Japanese students will be off to the U.S. for 10 days. During the stay, they will have opportunities to make presentations on the strength and beauty of Japan as well as Cool Japan. They will also experience school exchange and homestay to deepen their understanding of the U.S.
