Thank you to everyone who attended Japan Update on February 26, 2019 at Bellevue City Hall. After a networking reception catered by Nola’s Events, City Council Member Conrad Lee welcomed our guests and speakers in the Chambers.

Dr. Toru Mihara, Director for Institute for Amusement Industry Study at the Osaka University of Commerce and Chairman of the National Council on Gaming Legislation, started off the evening with a look into the impact of Integrated Resorts on Japan. He spoke about the American concept of casinos and how Japan can adapt casinos and IR to fit Japan.

Dr. Satu Limaye, Director of the East-West Center in Washington DC, looked at the newly updated data of Asia Matters / Japan Matters. The Asia Matters for America website provides “a one-stop shopping place” for information, news, and analysis that effects the Asia-USA relationship. Attendees were able to bring home their own Japan Matters for America report.

This event was made possible by our excellent speakers, audience members, Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, NAJAS, Delta Air Lines, and All Nippon Airways.

Congratulations to Noriko Marshall for winning the roundtrip ticket to Osaka on Delta Air Lines!
