New Diplomacy Initiative Establishment Commemorative Party
Discussion with Oliver Stone: Japan and America’s Untold Relationship
Preparations have been under way since last year, and thanks to the generous help and cooperation of all our supporters, we are ready to launch the New Diplomacy Initiative this summer. As an international policy think tank, the New Diplomacy Initiative will spread information, propose policies, and work to move Japanese relations within Asia and with the United States forward into the 21st century.We will be joined at our commemoration party by two-time Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone. Mr. Stone will also visit Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Okinawa this summer after the Japanese broadcast on NHK-BS of his recent documentary The Untold History of the United States. We are looking forward to hearing Mr. Stone’s opinions and discussing Japanese-American relations with this politically and socially outspoken American filmmaker.Please join us for this rare opportunity to spend a few pleasant hours in the historical Restaurant Alaska together with Mr. Stone. Thank you very much for your support, and we hope to see you there!
