CIE-US

John Manjiro-Whitfield Commemorative Center for International Exchange (U.S.)

About us

CIE-US is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 2011 to coordinate Japan-America Grassroots Summits in the United States.

The Japan-America Grassroots Summit is an annual large-scale meeting of Japanese and American citizens, held alternately in Japan and America. The Summits are inspired by the first contact between Japanese and Americans; the friendship between Japan-America Grassroots Summits marks the beginning of Japan-America grassroots exchange.

CIE-US cooperates closely with John Manjiro-Whitfield Commemorative Center for International Exchange (CIE) in Japan. CIE-US also cooperates with Japan-America Societies in many US cities. The National Association of Japan-America Societies (NAJAS) in Washington DC, a membership organization representing the 36 Japan-America Society network, acts as CIE-US Secretariat.
