The program involved a series of meeting with the country’s top leadership, including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Foreign Minister Taro Kono, and nearly 20 Diet members, as well as with some of the country’s most influential policy thinkers and business executives. The trip was organized in conjunction with the Mt. Fuji Dialogue, a high-level policy forum on US-Japan relations. The Congressional members addressed the conference and, as part of the meeting, took part in a special US-Japan Legislative Roundtable with more than a dozen senior legislators and top leaders.
