Program: Inquiry

Friday, January 7

We met with representatives of the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum (JAIF), an organization that promotes the peaceful use of nuclear energy as an integral vehicle for economic development and the improvement of social welfare in Japan. JAIF’s main activities include working with government officials, citizen groups and the media to promote nuclear energy in Japan, training nuclear industry personnel throughout Asia, and facilitating international cooperation for the development of the nuclear energy industry around the world.

Then we visited the U.S. Embassy in Japan where we met with Charge d’Affaires ad interim James Zumwalt, who discussed candidly with us the relationship between the U.S. and Japan, with special emphasis on nuclear weapons and energy issues. He also spoke with us about what it means to pursue a career in the foreign service, and took time to answer questions from the group.

In the evening we met with college students at Waseda University
