Having served as Japan’s top diplomat for issues concerning economy, trade, politics, and security, the honorable Ichiro Fujisaki is one of the most well connected individuals to Japan’s political and bureaucratic circles. He is respected and admired for his wise and steadfast leadership during some of the most trying times Japan has seen in recent history: the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster.

Since retiring his diplomatic post in 2012, multiple academic institutes and intercultural associations have sought his knowledge and opinions on world affairs. Currently Fujisaki is President of the America-Japan Society in Tokyo as well as a distinguished professor of Sophia University and a visiting professor of Keio University. Additionally, he continues to support the tsunami devastated regions by serving as chairman of the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund, a non-profit organization that helps students, schools, and families recover from the earthquake and tsunami.

Full Profile

Ichiro Fujisaki has been Japan’s top diplomat for the economy and trade, as well as political, security and regional issues. He served as ambassador to the United States following his service as Japan’s ambassador to the United Nations and World Trade Organization in Geneva. Due to Japan’s constantly changing political leadership, Fujisaki became the key interlocutor between Japan and the U.S. especially during the critical period following the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident in March 2011. In Washington as well as in Geneva, Fujisaki quickly became famous as an individual who excels in presenting complicated matters concerning the economy, energy, security and regional issues in a succinct manner with exceptional clarity and impeccable English. His humor and informal presentations were featured in national and local print media.

Prior to becoming ambassador, he served as the deputy foreign minister of Japan. With his negotiating skills and with the trust gained from different governmental ministries, he was chosen as the chief negotiator of Japan for all free trade area agreements Japan was negotiating at the time with the Republic of Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. He also initiated the regular high-level economic dialogue with China which he himself headed. In Japan’s Foreign Ministry, he has also held such posts as deputy director general for Asian Affairs and director general for North American Affairs. His overseas posts include Jakarta, Paris and London. He is reputed as a rare Japanese speaker who engages audiences instantly with his engaging and dynamic style coupled with his vast experiences and thoughtful reasoning. He currently serves as Chairman, International Strategies at Sophia University in Tokyo.

United States and Japan can work together


Ichiro Fujisaki delves into three key issues he feels the U.S. and Japan need to manage together in order to successfully move forward into the 21st century: how to fairly structure and regulate a global economy, how to support Middle Eastern citizens seeking democracy in their respected countries, and how to decrease nuclear power without turning to a more ecologically damaging means of generating electricity.

As the U.S. and Japan continue to work together, Fujisaki suggests they follow the three “no’s” to ensure lasting good terms: “no surprises, no over politicization, and no take-for-granted.” “I am quite hopeful about U.S. Japan relations,” he expresses, hoping that both parties have the best intentions in mind when it comes to sensitive issues.
