Under the “KAKEHASHI Project” of Japan’s Friendship Ties Program, 10 Japanese researchers visited the United States of America from March 17 to March 24, 2019 to participate in the program aimed at promoting the understanding of Japan with regard to its politics, economy, society, culture, history, and foreign policy as well as Jewish studies in Japan.

During the exchange program, they delivered a presentation and exchanged opinions on Jewish studies in Japan. Through the observation of various sites, the participants enjoyed a wide range of opportunities to improve their understanding of the US and Japan-US relations, and shared their individual interests and experiences through social media.
