dc.description.abstractThe U. S.-Japan Culture Center is located on the seventh floor of the Watergate complex, in Washington, D. C. The Watergate building is a luxurious hotel and business complex well known as a center of international activities. Guest to the hotel travel from all over the world and the Watergate office complex contains not only the U. S.-Japan Culture Center, but the Embassy of The Republic of Yemen, the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission, the Embassy of Brunei Darussalam and the Kuwait Information Office. There is the Brazilian mission to the OAS, The Health Education Foundation, and The American Film Institute. The complex's directory board also displays the names of doctors, lawyers, and other lucrative business offices. It may seem odd that a non-profit organization like the U. S. Japan Culture Center finds itself among such company, except for the personality and character of the center's founder and president, Mr. Mikio Kanda. While Mr. Kanda is concerned about peace and goodwill between people of all nations, he has sought to improve relations specifically between the U. S. and Japan because of the two country's postwar connection. A brief historical look at Japanese policies juxtaposed with the daily action of Mr. Kanda, reveals Mikio Kanda's character as well as pivotal aspects of the U. S. -Japan relationship.
