 2009 UNITED STATES:

Official Visit At San Jose City Hall for San Jose - Okayama Sister City Program
Monday, March 16th in San Jose, California

The Agency for Sports, Culture & Arts (ASCA) set up an official meet and greet for Mr. Shin Koyamada and Nia Lyte, co-founders of the SKF to meet with the Joe Hedges, International Program Manager of City of San Jose.

They first congratulated Mr. Hedges for over 50 years relationship as a Sister City of Okayama City, Japan, which happened to be Mr. Koyamada's hometown he grew up and the City Council that his father works at for over past three decades in City of Okayama.

Mr. Koyamada also officially serves as the International Goodwill Ambassador of the Okayama Prefectural Government, Japan since February 2010 to help bridge Okayama internationally.

The SKF's ASCA offered to help promote the Sister-City relationship between two cities for many years to come.

San Jose established its sister city relationship with Okayama on May 26, 1957.  The San Jose-Okayama sister city affiliation was the third sister city linkage established in the U.S. following the Sister City program’s inception in 1956. Located in southwestern Japan, Okayama has 700,000 residents, with a regional population of nearly 2 million.  Okayama is the capital of the Okayama Prefecture.  The Okayama Municipality was incorporated in 1889.

For more info about the San Jose - Okayama Sister Cities, please see the official website.
