Program Detail

As a joint project with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), CGP invites a diverse group of 10-15 Japanese Americans who are playing leading roles in such fields as business, public organizations, education, and the arts to Japan each year.

The goals of this program are to strengthen ties between Japanese-American leaders and their counterparts in Japan and to enhance the role of Japanese Americans in advancing US-Japan relations.

During the one week stay in Japan, the group meets with Japanese leaders in the government, political, business and non-profit sector fields and also visits Kyoto to experience traditional Japanese culture. As a part of this program, CGP co-hosts a public symposium with the Japanese American National Museum (Los Angeles, CA) and a local Japanese city government (e.g. Osaka, Tokyo, Okinawa, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Nagoya, Kobe, and Kyoto).
