Speaker Series:
World Vision 2030 - What's Japan's Role?

Guest Speaker: Tomohito Shinoda, Ph.D.
Vice President, Professor, and Director of IUJ Research Institute
International University of Japan

Many await the December announcement of Japan's long-term vision by think-tank organization Japan Akademeia (Japan's "Plato's School"). Dr. Tomohito Shinoda, chief editor of the Akademeia's International Affairs Committee, will share this new agenda -- a perspective of Japan in 2030 based on two years of discussions by business leaders, scholars, government officials, and labor leaders.

Tomohito Shinoda is Vice President, Professor of International Relations, and Director of the Research Institute at the International University of Japan, located in Niigata, Japan. He received his Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C. His research covers Japan's politics and foreign policy, international relations in East Asia, and U.S.-Japan relations.

Dr. Shinoda's publications include Contemporary Japanese Politics: Institutional Changes and Power Shift (Columbia University Press, 2013); Koizumi Diplomacy: Japan's Kantei Approach in Foreign and Defense Affairs (University of Washington Press, 2007); Leading Japan: The Role of the Prime Minister (Praeger, 2000); and Redefining the Partnership: The United States and Japan in East Asia (University Press of America, 1998).

Mission Project
We are in need of host families!

Established in 1994 by the Asian-Pacific Children's Convention's (APCC) in Fukuoka, the "Mission Project" (MP) is a program that sends Japanese children to different countries to enhance their understanding of their Asian-Pacific neighbors by learning about their lifestyles, culture and customs through first hand experiences. Hawaii is one of the designated locations this year, and JASH is honored to be a part of this amazing opportunity. 15 children from Fukuoka will be sent to Hawaii from March 25 - 30, 2015 to stay with local host families and experience life and school here in Hawaii. In the past, long lasting friendships have been formed between the host families and the students. If you are interested in serving as a host family for one of these Japanese students, please contact Elizabeth Stanton-Barrera at or call the JASH office at 524-4450.
