On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, Japan Society and Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA will co-host a half-day public panel discussion to examine the depth and strength of U.S. ties with Japan based on public opinion and statistics. The event will showcase the results of a survey commissioned by Sasakawa USA and conducted by the Pew Research Center in early 2015 on U.S. public attitudes toward Japan and Japanese public attitudes toward the United States. It will also feature results from the East-West Center’s “Japan-Matters for America” research project, also commissioned by Sasakawa USA, tracking national, state and Congressional district-level data on Japan’s footprint in the United States. Presentations will be followed by a discussion on the results of the data and its implications for the present and future U.S.-Japan relations.
