On January 11 (Sat.) students from St. Catherine's University and St.Thomas University in Minnesota, USA, and YNU students planning to go on the KAKEHASHI study tour to the U.S. in March held a joint presentation session. The students from St. Catherine's University and St. Thomas University are visiting Japan as part of their study tour organized by Profs. Louise Edwards-Simpson and Cecilia Konchar Farr, "West Meets East: U.S. Cross-cultural Encounters with Japan".

After four presentations by YNU students going on the KAKEHASHI tour, students held a discussion and feedback session. There was also a question and answer session by YNU's Prof. Kenji Hasegawa on the book he co-edited, "Rediscovering America: Japanese Perspectives on the American Century". Some students continued their discussion into the night, visiting Chinatown and other sites in Yokohama. It was a fruitful event for all involved.
