Overview

Under the “KAKEHASHI Project” of Japan’s Friendship Ties Programs, 25 Japanese high school students and supervisors visited the United States of America from January 25 to February 1, 2020 to participate in the program aimed at promoting the understanding of Japan with regard to its politics, economy, society, culture, history, and foreign policy.
During the school exchange program, they delivered a presentation and performance to introduce the attractiveness of Japan. Through the observation of various sites, the participants enjoyed a wide range of opportunities to improve their understanding of the U.S. and Japan-US relations, and shared their individual interests and experiences through social media. Based on their findings and experience in the U.S., each group of participants made a presentation in the final session and reported on the action plans to be implemented after returning to Japan.
