Programs

Speaker Series

The Sasakawa USA Speaker Series features an influential American or Japanese speaker to present on a timely topic of relevance to U.S.-Japan relations and engage in discussion with participants. The roundtables are generally off-the-record and by invitation-only.

Public Forums

Sasakawa USA’s Public Forums aim to engage a diverse group of Americans across the United States on issues pertinent to U.S.-Japan relations and improve their understanding of U.S.-Japan relations. One of our leading programs include The Alliance Working in America program series that seek to reach out to regional leaders in various U.S. cities. In Washington, D.C., we host an annual public forum in partnership with the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the Views of Japan series to introduce perspectives around the world on Japan and U.S.-Japan relations.
