Join us to promote and enjoy Japanese culture and student exchange here in California. Travel with us to Japan, and visit Japanese-related events in the LA area! We're the oldest Sister city of Santa Barbara (over 50 years) with the longest-running student exchange program (over 24 years). Our summer family-to-family exchange program is for children 13-15 years old. We seek individuals and families interested in learning about and fostering Japanese cultural exchange--gardens, dance, Tea ceremony, Ikebana, calligraphy, kimono-wearing and movies, art and music. If you have interest or expertise in any area associated with Japan, we're the group for you! We meet monthly, and put on activities every season. Call Linda Mathews, 805.637.1257 for information.
