  Under the “KAKEHASHI Project” of Japan’s Friendship Ties Program, 22 US students, who are winners in 2017 National Japan Bowl and 2 chaperones visited Japan from July 19th to July 26th, 2017 to participate in the program aimed at promoting their understanding of Japan with regard to Japanese politics, economy, society, culture, history, and foreign policy. In Nagasaki, the participants learned the Japanese history, culture and the peace-seeking efforts and deepened the relationship with Japanese people through the homestay and school exchange program. In Tokyo, besides of the courtesy calls, they experienced the observation tour in Akihabara, Asakusa and Harajuku, tea ceremony and origami, getting touch with the wide variety of Japanese aspects from traditional / pop culture to cutting edge technology.
  The participants found and impressed the cleanness and convenience of the cities and kindness of Japanese people, etc. and each participant actively shared their individual interests and experiences during the program through social media. Based on those findings in Japan, participants made group presentations in the final session and reported their action plans to be taken after returning home.
