From 2014 onwards, the "Walk in U.S., Talk on Japan" program has been taking place in various regions of the U.S. and Canada, highlighting Japan's attractiveness and appeal.
*Since 2016, this program has visited 2 provinces and 2 cities in Canada under the name of "Walk in Canada, Talk on Japan" as well.
Participants from Japan who have volunteered to join the program come from a diverse range of backgrounds, but all have some connection to the U.S. and Canada. They form groups, each of which is led by a "group leader" with a relevant area of expertise. While travelling through various major cities in North America, each group takes part in exchanges at a local grassroots level, discusses important factors of the future U.S.-Japan relationships and Canada-Japan relationships, and talks about recent positive developments in Japan.
