Supporting the Sister City relationship between 

Kitakami, Japan and Concord, California

The Concord Ambassadors
is an all-volunteer organization which maintains the sister city relationship between Kitakami, Japan and Concord, California.  

We're 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.
