Ohio DOE Seeks Other DOEs with State/Prefecture-Level MOUs with Japan

The Ohio Department of Education is exploring the possibility of establishing an MOU with an appropriate educational institution at the prefecture/state level. We are curious if any other state DOEs have similar MOUs of this nature with Japan. If your state has a formal relationship with Japan of this nature, please briefly describe the nature of the MOU , who your partner institution is and how long the MOU has been in place. I will follow up individually with those who respond to gather additional information.
