The initiative has been created by the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to enhance the relationship amongst teenagers of Japan with other Asian countries across the world. Another program called “Kakehashi” was implemented recently which focused on providing a scholarship to over 1,000 Asian students in reputed high schools in Japan in the next 5 years.

The Kato Asao Scholarship is thus, an extension to the Kakehashi program for improving the ratio of international students studying in Japan educational institutes.
