Last week, the twenty-third class of Mansfield Fellows toured Japan’s National Diet Building. As a part of their orientation with the National Personnel Authority, the Fellows visited Japan’s House of Councillors, the upper house of Japan’s legislature. The Fellows also met with Mr. Kohei Akiyama, the Acting Director of the North America Exchange Division, North American Affairs Bureau, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The nine Fellows from this year’s class began their placements with Japanese government agencies this week.
