About the Kakehashi Project
“Kakehashi” means “bridge” in Japanese, symbolizing the aim of the Kakehashi Project that participants form lasting relationships with Japan and its people and serve as bridges between nations and cultures. The project is generously supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan (MOFA) and administered by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada. The objectives are:
- To promote mutual trust and understanding among the peoples of Japan, the US and Canada, and to build a basis for future friendship and cooperation.
- To encourage an understanding of Japan.
- To convey information about Japan to the public through participants of this project.
