On Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 at 5:30pm, the Japanese delegation will take part in a presentation, Q&A session and a reception in the Morgan University Center Ballroom.

The event is open to the public. Students, military service members or veterans who have served in Japan and community members interested in Japan are especially encouraged to attend.

The “Walk in the U.S., Talk on Japan” program is coordinated through the Japanese Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office in Tokyo and is one of four programs that are occurring in the U.S. in 2017-2018. The delegation visiting Austin Peay will be led by Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki, former Japanese ambassador to the United States.

The “Walk in the U.S., Talk on Japan” program began in 2014 as a grassroots diplomacy program to share stories of Japan today. With support from the government of Japan, delegations feature a diverse range of Japanese citizens with a wealth of experience, and members include students, academics, business people and diplomats, representing multiple facets of Japanese life and culture.

In addition to Ambassador Fujisaki, delegation members include Asako Kato, an international businesswoman; Hayato Sawa, a university student; and Dr. Liu Xiaoyan, a non-native Japanese speaker now living and working in Japan.

Since the start of the program, delegations have visited 34 states and 66 cities in the U.S., as well as Vancouver and Toronto in Canada.
