Consul-General gives briefing to Kakehashi Project Tohoku University and Yokohama National University students (January 6, 2017)


     As part of the Kakehashi Project, which was started to deepen mutual understanding between Japan and the United States, a delegation of 50 students and chaperones from Tohoku University and Yokohama National University visited Colorado on Friday, January 6th through Wednesday, the 11th. On the 6th, Consul-General Ito briefed the students about the state by explaining the importance of Japan-U.S. exchanges and the history of Japanese-Americans. The students asked many questions about Japan-U.S. cultural exchanges and the meaningfulness of the being diplomat. Through youth mutual exchange, we hope mutual understanding between Japan and the U.S. deepens further and broadens future friendly exchanges.
