Cathy_JennensWelcome to the Kelowna-Kasugai Sister City Association website. We are excited about this website because it will give us the opportunity to show the citizens of both Kelowna and Kasugai, Japan what the association does inside the communities. I look forward to sharing the history, the exchange of ideas, culture, education, and events relating to the celebration and concerns of our two cities. We have strong ties and work together to bring awareness of each other's culture to the people of both cities by way of school exchanges, cultural exchanges, civic exchanges, and more. Enjoy our website and please feel free to join our association if anything interests you.

visiter from Kasugai City

In September, Mr. Mikami and his nine friends visited Kelowna from Kasugai City.

Mr. Mikami was the initiator for Kelowna and Kasugai to become sister cities. He has visited Kelowna several times and his main purpose for visiting here this time was to the original association members and give Buddhist chanting sutra to the departed Mr. Roy Tanaka who was the honorary president of our association.

Most of the delegates were in Canada for the first time. We took them city sightseeing, including the downtown promenade, Kasugai Garden, wineries, salmon spawning and the Farmer’s Market.

Mr. Makami was so pleased to reunite with old friends Al & Donna HOrning, Ron & Thelma White, Norm & Val Fix and Herb and Peggy Tanaka. the association gave them a warm welcoming party at the Eldorado.

In return, they gave the association many Japanese items for the Taste of Japan Fund Raiser when we visited Kasugai in October.
