"The Saint Paul – Nagasaki Sister City Committee is raising money to support two cultural exchanges in 2015–our 60th anniversary as Sister Cities! SPNSCC’s logo is of hata kites from Nagasaki and we have been long time supporters of the Sansei Yonsei Kai dance group. Seiko Nakamura, kite flyer extraordinaire, is coming from Nagasaki to give our 60th celebration a flying start the weekend of June 6, 2015. He will fly his hata kites over the cherry trees at Como Park on Saturday, June 6, and again on Sunday, June 7. Nakamura-san came to the Twin Cities about 15 years ago and we are thrilled he will come again." -- Saint Paul Nagasaki Sister City Committee
