On May 28, 2018, Yokusuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies (YCAPS) members and guests received a tour of the Diet Building (Kokkai-gijidō) and participated in a brief question and answer session with Minister Shigeru Ishiba. Prior to the tour, the participants enjoyed a working lunch. YCAPS Special Advisor Mike Bosack provided a presentation on the history and the mechanics of the Diet, as well as postwar Japanese domestic politics in general and the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in particular. Bosack’s presentation was titled, “From Itō to Abe: A Primer on Diet Politics.”
