The Concord Ambassadors
is an all-volunteer organization which maintains the sister
city relationship between Kitakami, Japan and Concord,
dedicated to promoting mutual exchanges in the fields of education,
culture, social affairs and economics. We encourage personal and
business relationships between both individuals and groups.
For nearly 40
years there has been a steady flow of visitors between the two cities
enjoying the opportunity for "home stay" visits and culture exchange.
