Japanese Delegation Visits to Superior

Student and Adult delegations from Ami-machi will next visit Superior in August 2017. 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.

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. In early 2017 we will be recruiting up to 12 Student Delegates, 2 Chaperones, and a number of Adult Delegates to visit Ami-machi in early August 2018.
