Japan in the Year is an all-day symposium that gathers the top experts on Japan from think tanks, academia, the government, the press and the business and non-profit sectors to look at Japan’s domestic and international prospects for the coming year.

This event is held every January.

David R. Stilwell and Hiroyuki Akita will join two panels of leading experts from academia, business, and the media to consider a broad range of political, economic, security, and social issues likely to impact Japan and the U.S.-Japan alliance in the year ahead.
