The Asia Kakehashi Project (kakehashi is Japanese for “bridging”) is the initiative announced by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2017 to strengthen relations between Japan and the rest of Asia. The program provides full scholarships for Asian high school students to live and study in Japan. The first 100 students arrived in Japan in August 2018, and the program is gradually expanding in numbers and length of stay.
