2016 Sister City Delegation Report Session

This summer, Himeji junior high and high school students were sent out, as youth ambassadors, to our sister cities.
Now, we invite you to their report session. For each group, representatives will present about the city they visited.
This is an excellent opportunity to hear about what they found interesting, and what was most memorable from their experience. We encourage those who are interested in the sister cities or future exchange opportunities to participate.
