Connecting those who have served in Japan.

YCAPS Tour of the Diet Building

On May 28, 2018, Yokusuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies members and guests received a tour of the Diet Building (Kokkai-gijidō) as well as a brief question and answer session with Minister Shigeru Ishiba. Prior to the tour, YCAPS members and guests enjoyed a working lunch. YCAPS Special Advisor Mike Bosack provided a presentation on the history and the mechanics of the Diet, as well as postwar Japanese domestic politics in general and the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in particular. Mr. Bosack’s presentation was titled, “From Itō to Abe: A Primer on Diet Politics.”

Prior to the tour, participants had the opportunity to engage in a lengthy question-and-answer session with Mr. Bosack and the staff of Ishiba-san, in order to better understand the ways in which Japanese politics both resembles and differs that of other countries, as well increase their knowledge of the issues that dominate Japan’s domestic and foreign politics and policy. After the Diet tour and Q&A sessions, participants were afforded a photographic opportunity with Ishiba-san. The event was a part of the YCAPS-JUMP seminar series.

Mission

The Japan U.S. Military Program (JUMP) connects past and present service members, families, and government civilians who have served in Japan. Through social networks and events, JUMP builds relationships and provides opportunities for service members to engage with each other. JUMP provides a powerful foundation for sustaining the solid alliance and relationship that exists between the U.S. and Japan.
