Click here to downloadaudio and video of Governor Ishihara's remarks in the original Japanese.
A fixture on Japan’s political scene, long-time Governor of Tokyo (1999-present) Shintaro Ishihara is far and away one of Japan’s leading political figures. Given Tokyo’s dominant size, the views of the Governor are very important in Japanese political debate on the issues of the day, domestic and international. Governor Ishihara will share his views on the U.S.-Japan Alliance and other issues with a Heritage audience, to be immediately followed by a panel discussion from two prominent American experts/practitioners on U.S.-Japan relations. We hope you will join us for what promises to a lively event.
