KAKEHASHI Project

The KAKEHASHI Project, which has been promoted by the Japanese government (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) since FY2014, aims to foster greater understanding of Japanese politics, society, history and foreign policy via personal exchange: inviting promising future leaders from North America to Japan while sending Japan’s promising future leaders to North America. Further, by broadening knowledge and appreciation of Japan amongst non-Japanese, a more robust foundation for Japanese diplomacy is created and motivated advocates for Japan’s appeal, diplomatic positions and other aspects are cultivated amongst past and present project participants, thereby raising Japan’s image within, and contributing to greater, sustained interest from, the international community.
The USJI participates in the KAKEHASHI Project by accepting young researchers from the United States as well as by sending young researches from USJI sponsoring universities to the United States.
