Mission Statement

The Fairfield Sister City Exchange Program strengthens ties of friendship and cultural understanding between Fairfield and the City Over the Horizon: Nirasaki, Japan.

The program lets people express their common desire for friendship, goodwill, and cooperation to build a better world. Our Sister City Program is an exciting way for local citizens to expand their cultural, civic, and economic horizons. The program is comprised of citizens of all ages as well as civic and business leaders who promote Fairfield around the world.

Description

Each year the City of Fairfield sends six students and a chaperone to Nirasaki, Japan, for a three-week student exchange during the month of July. During the visit, the students live in the homes of host families and participate in a wide variety of activities sponsored by our Sister City. Students have the opportunity to visit schools in Japan, tour historical and cultural sites, and experience the culture and lifestyle of a Japanese family. Students who have entered 9th grade are eligible to apply.

During the month of December
