The U.S.-Japan Council is an educational 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting people-to-people connections as crucial to a strong U.S.-Japan relationship. The Council brings together diverse leadership, engages stakeholders in the bilateral relationship and explores issues that benefit communities, businesses and government entities on both sides of the Pacific.
Japanese Americans play a catalytic role in strengthening and diversifying U.S.-Japan relations. Recognizing this unique role, the U.S.-Japan Council cultivates a national network of Japanese Americans with varied professional backgrounds and provides them with leadership opportunities to help shape U.S.-Japan relations. The Council, through its programs and initiatives, also allows Japanese Americans to engage with their Japanese counterparts to form deep and meaningful ties.
The TOMODACHI Initiative is a public-private partnership between the U.S.-Japan Council and the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo. Born out of support for Japan’s recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake, TOMODACHI invests in the next generation of Japanese and American leaders through educational and cultural exchanges as well as leadership programs. We seek to foster a “TOMODACHI generation” of young American and Japanese leaders who are committed to and engaged in strengthening U.S.-Japan relations, appreciate each other’s countries and cultures and possess the global skills and mindsets needed to contribute to and thrive in a more cooperative, prosperous and secure world.
