Congressional Study Group on Japan

Sasakawa USA is committed to engaging with Congressional members and staff to promote a greater understanding of the U.S.-Japan relationship. With this goal in mind, since 2014, Sasakawa USA has partnered with and supported programs by Former Members of Congress (FMC), an independent, non-partisan, and non-advocacy organization that promotes legislative exchange between the U.S. Congress and Japanese Diet through their Congressional Study Group on Japan (CSGJ).

Through this support of CSGJ programs, Sasakawa USA provides an ongoing forum for candid dialogue on issues critical to both the United States and Japan, the most important ally and partner of the United States in Asia. The cornerstone of these programs are two annual, week-long delegations to Japan: one for members of Congress, and another for Chiefs of Staff. Delegates on these trips have the opportunity to deepen their political, economic, historical, and cultural knowledge of Japan through meetings with government officials, Diet members, military officers, professors, business leaders, journalists, and cultural experts who provide a well-rounded view of Japan.
