NIKKEI WEST -- Before his Consulate posting Tasaka came from Japan to the U.S. and attended San Francisco State University (2004 – 2006), where he studied International Relations. He said his fondest experience includes establishing business and cultural ties between Japan and the U.S. that have corrected a past history of sorrow. “Meeting people in communities has been super inspiring,” he said. “California was a hostile place for Japanese 100 years ago. They didn’t even allow them to go to public school. But today hundreds of relationships across the U.S. have been built with Japan. We have great opportunities for future generations because of Japanese American communities.”
