The World Cup co-hosted by the Republic of Korea and Japan in 2002 triggered this plan. The plan will also be held this year to build Japan’s new future with Asia focusing on its neighbor, Korea.
In this city that brought Matsushiro Headquarters (Daihonei), we look back from a global perspective on how Japan has ever moved toward building a large peace ring with, not only neighboring countries in Asia, but also nations all over the world. Let’s find a clean, real, and beautiful Japan where we can talk together candidly about our future.
