Tokyo Office

The Tokyo office was established in 1997 to assist the Foundation with its programs abroad. As a smaller office, it works directly with the Japan-based Board members on Board programs and Foundation activities, and is particularly involved with the Mike Mansfield Fellowship Program. In April 2014, the Tokyo office moved to the International House of Japan. The new contact information is:
