About Us

We have prepared a short video below for an overview on who we are and what we do. To learn more about our organization and each of the programs mentioned, please visit our organization website www.cupertinotoyokawa.org.

The City of Cupertino and the City of Toyokawa, Japan, have been sister cities since 1978. Our program promotes cultural awareness and friendship between the two cities. The 40th year of this relationship is being celebrated this year.

The relationship continues to thrive through the annual student exchange program and the cultural awareness is promoted each year through the annual Cherry Blossom Festival held on the last weekend in April. If you have any questions or comments, please connect with us. ​
