Concord Kitakami Sister City Tour

Friday, October 18, 2019

The City of Concord is proud to partner with the Concord Ambassadors to celebrate 45 years as Sister Cities with Kitakami, Japan. Every five years, the anniversary of the relationship between the two cities is celebrated by a delegation visiting the Sister City, led by the Mayor and city officials, Ambassador members and interested residents. Concord and Kitakami alternate the five-year official visits. This fall, a delegation from Concord will be visiting Kitakami, which is located in the upper northeast area of Japan in the Iwate Prefecture. This year, the Concord Ambassadors will host a 12-day trip to Japan that includes tours of temples, pagodas and castles, UNESCO World Heritage sites, gardens, old world villages and Samurai homes in the cities of Kitakami, Kyoto, Takayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa. The tour will also include a 3-day home stay, where participants can experience Japanese culture and life up close. For more information, please visit www.concordambassadors
