Fujisaki has been the Ambassador of Japan to the United States since June 2008. He served as the political minister of the Embassy of Japan in Washington, DC, from 1995-99, but his association with the United States goes back even further. It started with a year in the early 1960’s as a junior high school student here in Seattle, Washington. He also studied one year each at Brown University and Stanford University Graduate School in the early 1970’s.

As a diplomat, he has served in Jakarta, Paris (OECD), and London. Prior to his current post, he served as Ambassador to the UN and to the WTO in Geneva. While there, he served as the Chairman of the Executive Committee of UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees).

This event is free and open to the public.
