Who we are

The Japanese Sister Cities Committee is a commission of 20 citizens appointed by either the City of Bloomington or Town of Normal council.  The committee is charged to facilitate the friendship with Asahikawa, Japan and serve as ambassadors of Japanese culture in Bloomington-Normal, which we have been doing since 1962.
