What is the Grassroots Summit?
The Japan America Grassroots Summit is an annual large-scale exchange of Japanese and American people, held alternatively in Japan and America. The Summit aims to strengthen the peaceful relationship between our two countries by fostering friendship at the grassroots level. More information here.
After opening the Summit in Seattle, participants leave for their home stay town and stay with their host family for four days and three nights. During the home stay days, the local town leaders and host families work together to share the best that their community has to offer. Learn more about Local Sessions here.
