U.S. Coast Guard hosts cadets from Japanese Coast Guard Training Ship Kojima

SANTA RITA, Guam — The U.S. Coast Guard hosted Capt. Kazushi Sakae and over 40 cadets from the Japanese Coast Guard training ship, Kojima, during their visit to Guam on June 12, 2024. The event marked a significant moment of international cooperation and camaraderie between the two maritime services. The Kojima's visit included a reception aboard the ship later that evening, attended by local leaders and partners, who reciprocated the warm hospitality extended by the Japanese Coast Guard. This visit is particularly notable as it marks the Kojima's first and last port call on Guam before the ship is replaced later this year. During the visit, three U.S. Coast Guard Academy cadets had the unique opportunity to share their recent experience of joining Japanese counterparts on the voyage to Guam. This journey created lasting memories and built strong professional relationships.
