U.S.-Japan Ties: Image & Reality (DC)

April 7, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

On the occasion of the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival and the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA held a half-day public panel discussion in Washington, DC to examine the depth and strength of U.S. ties with Japan based on public opinion and statistics. The event showcased the results of a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center in early 2015 on U.S. public attitudes toward Japan and Japanese public attitudes toward the United States. It also featured results from the East-West Center’s “Japan-Matters for America” research project tracking national, state and Congressional district-level data on Japan’s footprint in the United States. For the full agenda and speakers’ biographies, click here.
