ABOUT JCU

What We Believe

Bridge for Prosperity in Japan and the U.S. The Japanese Conservative Union (JCU) was founded in 2015. Our mission is to foster dialogue to expand understandings of conservative ideas, not only between the US and Japan but also within Japan and across Asia.

JCU believes the proper role of government is to protect its citizens' lives, safety, and wealth through a commitment to the rule of law and strong national security; to unleash economic growth by minimizing tax and regulatory burdens, thus empowering all generations to prosper; and to operate efficiently and transparently.

What We Do

1. JCU Defines Conservatism To define and measure the practice of “conservatism” in Japan, JCU conducts its "JCU Rating," calculating each Diet member’s conservative ranking based on their voting behavior. This project assesses how the members contribute to the enactment of legislation based on conservative principles, such as small government, lower taxes, less regulation, strong national security and commitment to the U.S.-Japan alliance.We are also planning to expand this rating to the governments of Asian countries.
2. JCU Grows Conservatism To promote conservatism not only in Japan but also in other Asian countries, we carry out various activities to educate the next generation. Cooperating with U.S. conservatives. especially the American Conservation Union (ACU), we invite key officials and thought leaders from Japan and the U.S. to participate in seminars and events designed to explore the current political and cultural climate in the U.S. and Japan, as well as the future of Japan-U.S. relations. In addition, we work to form conservatives with international knowledge by sponsoring participation in U.S. CPAC, writings, media appearances etc.
3. JCU Wins for Conservatism JCU works within the political process to advance conservative ideals and policies, JCU will begin implementing election planning support and study sessions in an effort to influence policy makers in Japan. In addition, JCU’s mission includes education and promotional activities to shape public opinion in Japan and abroad.
