Some representatives of Florida Jetaa in West Palm Beach were invited to have tea with the First Lady of Japan, Mrs. Akie Abe! Thank you very much for dedicating time to sit with us during Prime Minister Abe’s visit with President Trump.
Thank you, also, to Mrs. Sugiyama (Wife of Ambassador of Japan to the U.S.), Consul General Ken Okaniwa (Consulate General of Japan in Miami), and Ms. Tanaka (Executive Assistant to Mrs. Abe). We thoroughly enjoyed discussing the impact that JET has had on our careers and our views of Japan, and how the JET Alumni network can further contribute to mutual, cultural understanding and foreign relations.
