Kanreki: Boston-Kyoto Sister City 60th anniversary kickoff

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Rokuichiro Michii, Consul General of Japan in Boston, invite you to the Boston-Kyoto Sister City 60th Anniversary Kickoff!

This year the City of Boston and the City of Kyoto, Japan, will celebrate our 60th Anniversary as Sister Cities. Signed in 1959, Kyoto is Boston’s first-ever Sister City.

Register for the event

In Japan, 60 is a significant number, signifying rebirth or kanreki; therefore, the two cities are planning a series of events throughout 2019 to commemorate this milestone. Join us at City Hall on March 26 to kick off a year of activities together while enjoying Japanese culture through traditional food and cultural experiences, including:

  • Ikebana Flower Arranging Demonstration
  • Tea Ceremony Demonstration
  • Incense Demonstration
