10 Years and Counting...

In 2011, Kizuna was formed by a group of young leaders who imagined a Nikkei community revolutionized and led by the next generation. It is with kansha that we give our heartfelt thanks for your support of our mission to educate, empower, and engage the next generation of community leaders.
