Ever wanted to meet a VIP from Japan and exchange views? Here’s a chance you don’t want to miss out on! On March 11, 2015, Loyola Marymount University will be hosting a panel in the McIntosh Conference Room located in University Hall from 3:00PM to 4:15PM, where you will have the opportunity to learn about Japanese politics, culture, and society directly from the source.

The panel will include former Japanese ambassador to the US and Director General for North America Affairs of Foreign Ministry Ichiro Fujisaki; former head of Mitsui and Company’s Washington D.C office and founder of Nissan Global Corporation Takuro Yoneyama; former outreach coordinator of the Japan Foundation through the Japan Outreach Initiative Program Azusa “Hanah” Tobimatsu; ambassador of site-seeing for Hokkaido Momoka Seino; and fourth year student at Kejo University Erika Takeda, who is currently researching the U.S. Constitution with a focus on the Internet and law.

A reception will follow the presentation and Q&A session in the Marymount Institute/Third Floor Skyway from 4:15PM to 5:30PM. Here, you will be able to meet and chat with members of the delegation in a more casual setting. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
