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.

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.
