New Member Spotlight: Consulate General of Japan in Boston

The Consulate General of Japan in Boston is the representative office of the Japanese government in the New England region and is led by Consul General Tsutomu (Tom) Himeno. The Consul General’s primary goal is to further develop and strengthen the economic, cultural, and other ties between Japan and the New England region, who enjoy a deep and historic relationship.

The Consul General, who has served in his current post since August 2014, has stated he wishes to focus on three main goals in addition to the other various functions of his office. First, he “intends to make a great effort to inform New Englanders about what Japan and the Japanese people have to offer.” Second, he wants to “strengthen [Japanese] efforts to make New England and its many attractive features better known in Japan.” His last major focus is “to promote Japan-U.S. collaboration wherever and whenever it is possible.”

Consul General Tsutomu Himeno has previously served at the Embassies of Japan in the United Kingdom, Washington, DC, and Singapore. Additionally, he has represented Japan at the United Nations and the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The New England region is grateful to have him, and the experience he brings with him, serving as the representative of the Japanese government.

The New England Council welcomes the Consulate General of Japan in Boston to the Council and looks forward to further developing the rich relationship between our region and Japan.
