The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California in San Francisco hosted Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa on Monday for a roundtable discussion with Japantown and other cultural leaders in the larger Japanese American community. Kamikawa was in San Francisco for a meeting of APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation), an intergovernmental forum for 21 member economies in the Pacific Rim. Several events are being held in Japantown in conjunction with APEC.
