Purpose of event

JAIMS was established in 1972 based on the vision of Yoshimitsu Kohra, then President of Fujitsu Limited. His aim was to "train international business persons who will become a bridge between Japan and the United States." On May 1 of the same year, they started their first educational activities in Hawaii, and this year marks their 50 year anniversary.
We regard this anniversary as an opportunity to rebuild relationships with graduates and those who support and cooperate with our program. Our aim is to strengthen and expand the circle of community throughout JAIMS.
We look forward to your participation to the event.
