JACL Kakehashi Project

Each year, the JACL Kakehashi Project, supported by the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), Japan International Cooperation Center (JICE), and funding from Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, selects participants for a 9-day trip to Japan. This experience includes visits to historical sites, cultural activities, and educational workshops in Tokyo and one or two other cities. For more information, please visit the National JACL website.
