This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the cherry blossoms presentation to Washington. The cherry blossoms remain as a symbol of friendship between the United States and Japan today. This year also poses probably the greatest challenge for modern Japan as the country faces multiple issues including energy security, economic and fiscal improvement, and recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake. On this occasion, we are honored to hear from Ambassador Fujisaki about the U.S.-Japan relationship, the significance of the cherry blossoms, and the upcoming anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Please join us as Ambassador Fujisaki shares his views on the current and future state of Japan and the U.S.-Japan relationship.
