The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan will sponsor a group of five Japanese American high school students from throughout the U.S. to travel to Japan on March 9-20, 2012. During the visit, students will have the opportunity to learn about various aspects of Japan and to promote mutual understanding and exchanges between Japanese and Japanese American younger generations. Those with multiracial backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply.
This is the third group of students to be invited for the program. The itinerary in Japan is scheduled to include a visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, tours of Tokyo and the Kansai area, and a homestay experience.
