Sister City Support Services

In an effort to encourage and facilitate the increasing volume of exchange and grassroots programs between Japanese and Californian cities, the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco looks forward to helping you with your upcoming events and exchange activities.

1. Media Subscriptions and Rentals

We receive a number of monthly and quarterly publications in both Japanese and English that cover a wide range of topics from customs and culture to economy and government. We are willing to offer a limited number of free subscriptions to these publications upon request.

2. Program Support

The Consulate is delighted to provide an array of support services for sister city organizations, schools, and local governments interested in organizing a Japan-related exchange program or activity.
