Stanford, Japan have historical, academic ties

Not only does Stanford have historical ties to Japan that date back to the university's founding, but it also has an exceptionally strong academic program in Japanese and Asian studies as well as a large number of major, ongoing research collaborations with Japanese scientists and scholars.
