Change in Human Flows between the United States and Japan: Report and Policy Implications
Mansfield Visiting Fellow Mizuki Yamanaka examines the trends behind past U.S.-Japan exchanges and how they compare to exchanges with other East Asian countries. His report also raises important questions about future exchanges with Japan. Although Japan is still the largest source of visitors to the United States among East Asian countries, the number of visitors has been declining. Mr. Yamanaka suggests that U.S.-Japan exchanges need to advance to the next stage and proposes policy visions intended to improve future bilateral exchanges. Published March 2010.
