1. G1サミット ホーム
  2. Vision


The G1 is a forum for the leaders of the next generation to gather, discuss, and paint a vision for the rebirth of Japan in a turbulent world.

The name is derived from our aspirations that the globe will become as one, that we can become No. 1 if we have a Global mindset, and that our generation will unite as one.

We believe that Japan and the world need leadership that is backed by wisdom, well-rounded knowledge, ambition, and a network of close associates.

The purpose of the G1 is to gather leaders and create such a network. At the Summit, people from the same generation who are active at the forefront of politics, economy, business, science, technology, and culture gather to discuss contemporary issues, acquire knowledge in a variety of fields, make good friends, and help each other grow as leaders.

In the future we hope that some of our participants will be prime ministers, Nobel laureates, leading executives, and outstanding contributors in the academic and cultural fields.

What visions and perspectives will they have when they create Japan’s future? The G1 will help realize a better society by providing perspective, wisdom, and a foundation for the network of the next generation of leaders.


The G1 Summit aims to model itself as a “Davos Forum” for young leaders in Japan, offering opportunities for leaders who will play major roles in Japan and the world to share ideas and learn from each other. By discussing and exchanging views on politics, economics, culture, technology, and the environment, participants will acquire knowledge and networks that they will be able to tap in to when they exercise leadership.


The G1 Summit offers tomorrow’s leaders opportunities to:

  • Broaden their perspective and consider the future of Japan and the world.
  • Discuss a wide range of issues, including politics, the economy, culture, technology, and the environment.
  • Mutually exchange views, rather than a unilateral flow of information.
  • Develop a community of associates from the same generation.

Three Principles

  • Make proposals rather than mere criticism
  • Take actions, do not just form ideas
  • Foster awareness as leaders
