News Letters


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.
