President & CEO
Tadashi Yamamoto, founder and president of the Japan Center for International Exchange, passed away on April 15 at the age of 76. He was an extraordinary person whose career was marked by extraordinary accomplishment. He was a liberal internationalist, an optimist who believed wholeheartedly that cultural
exchanges and dialogue could bring peoples and nations closer together, especially those that previously had been adversaries. He believed that people-to-people exchanges in all their forms were a formidable vehicle for international understanding and peace. He committed his life to interpreting Japan to the world
and the world to Japan.
