Japan's 2011 National Day Reception Hosted in Denver by Consulate General Ikuhiko Ono

The important relationship between Japan and the Rocky Mountain Region was recognized recently when the Consulate General of Japan in Denver hosted the 2011 National Day Reception, which commemorates the Emperor of Japan's birthday.

The National Day Reception was hosted by Consul General and Mrs. Ikuhiko Ono. Consul General Ono's office, which was established in 1999, is responsible for the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. There are approximately 10,000 Japanese citizens who live in the four state area as well as upwards of 100 Japanese companies.

Japan is the world's third largest economy and a major economic power in both Asia and globally.

Denver Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law Graduate Program has welcomed a number of Japanese students. Our hope at Denver Law is to recruit more students from Japan, and thus it was a great honor to be invited to the National Day Reception and meet various individuals who are involved with maintaining the strong relationship between Japan and the United States.
