This is a period of renewed strength for many Japanese companies, and there is a widespread view in Japan that its leadership should invest in programs that renew and strengthen the ties between our two countries. JFIT has benefited from a generous initial gift from BroadBand Tower, an information technology company in Japan that is led by a prominent Japanese entrepreneur, Hiroshi Fujiwara.
