U.S.-Japan Ties: Image and Reality (San Francisco)

June 11, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


As part of the “U.S. Public Outreach Program” event series, the Commonwealth Club of California and Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA co-hosted a noon program in San Francisco to examine the depth and strength of U.S. ties with Japan based on public opinion and statistics. This event featured His Excellency John Roos, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan. The event showcased the results of a survey commissioned by Sasakawa USA and 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, also commissioned by Sasakawa USA, tracking national, state and Congressional district-level data on Japan’s footprint in the United States. Presentations were followed by a discussion on the results of the data and its implications for the present and future U.S.-Japan relations.
