Japan, being an island country, is geographically isolated from the rest of the world and hence has developed homogeneous society and very unique culture and tradition. Relatively crowded society makes Japanese people value harmony, be respectful and humble. The US has consistently been the most important and popular country for Japan.

Yusuke SHINDO, a career diplomat of Japan, joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan in 1986. At the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry, he was, among others, in charge of economic development assistance, trade negotiations, climate change and arms control. He served several overseas postings such as Saudi Arabia, Germany, Los Angeles, Indonesia, Geneva and Pakistan. In July of 2021, he moved to Michigan from Pakistan as Consul General of Japan in Detroit.
