Our speakers on October 16, 2019 will be members of the 2019 Walk in U.S., Talk on Japan delegation:
Tomohiko Taniguchi (Delegation Leader)
From 2014 onwards, the "Walk in U.S., Talk on Japan" program has been taking place in various regions of the U.S. and Canada, highlighting Japan's attractiveness and appeal.
*Since 2016, this program has visited 2 provinces and 2 cities in Canada under the name of "Walk in Canada, Talk on Japan" as well.
Participants from Japan who have volunteered to join the program come from a diverse range of backgrounds, but all have some connection to the U.S. and Canada. They form groups, each of which is led by a "group leader" with a relevant area of expertise. While travelling through various major cities in North America, each group takes part in exchanges at a local grassroots level, discusses important factors of the future U.S.-Japan relationships and Canada-Japan relationships, and talks about recent positive developments in Japan.
