IDN-INPS travelled to Kazakhstan to provide an in-depth coverage of  EXPO 2017 Astana inaugurated on June 10. Touted by some as the 'Disneyland for Adults' and 'a virtual reality beyond science fiction' by others, EXPO 2017 shows the ways to access affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

This year marks the 105th anniversary of the donation of 3,000 cherry blossom trees to Washington D.C. by Ozaki Yukio in 1912 when he was Mayor of Tokyo. As in previous years, the 2017 Cherry Blossom Queen, who is selected annually during the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C., visited Japan as the U.S. goodwill ambassador.

After meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Governor of Tokyo and the House Speaker, the 2017 Cherry Blossom Queen and chaperone visited Ise, Mie Prefecture of Central Japan, accompanied by Mr. Takaaki Ishida, Secretary General of Ozaki Yukio Memorial Foundation which hosted the delegation together with NPO Gakudo Kofu June 4-6, 2017.
