Activities & Events

Sister City Commission Calendar

The Sister City Commission is active throughout the year to promote the Sister City relationship, and introduce Japanese culture to the community.

Upcoming events:

Shinnenkai 2018 (A Japanese New Year's Shindig)

Invitation to New Year's Event, 1/29/18, 6 - 8pm, Christ Lutheran Church, Superior WI

Every other year a group of students and adults from Superior/Douglas County visits Ami-machi for a 
week of cultural enrichment and fun. Students stay with host families, and have the opportunity to visit unique sites, try new food, and make new friends. Twelve Student Delegates, 2 Chaperones, and a number of Adult Delegates will visit Ami-machi in early August 2018.

We are still seeking Chaperones for the Student Delegation. 

Japanese Delegation Visits to Superior

Student and Adult delegations from Ami-machi will next visit Superior in August 2019. Here is how you can get involved:

Rotary members gather in front of new garden sign.
  • Be a host family for one of the student delegates for one week. Click here for the Host Family Application.
  • Help out with activities for the adult or student delegates during their visit.
  • If your business or organization would like to meet our delegates, or offer a tour of your facility, let us know!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact a Commission Board Member, or the Sister City Coordinator (see sidebar). Click the link above to read about recent Delegation visits from Ami-machi.
