12 Student Delegates, 2 Chaperones, and 6 Adult Delegates participated in the 2016 Sister City exchange visit to Ami-machi, Japan.

The 10-day trip to Ami-machi took place from August 3 - August 12, 2016.  It coincided with the “My Ami Festival”, at which the Delegates performed a country dance as special guests.

Activities included a visit to a kindergarten and a middle school, a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, and trying traditional Japanese archery. Students also experienced daily life with a Japanese host family.

The delegation also spent 2 days in Tokyo before returning home to Superior. See the photo gallery below for a glimpse of their visit.
