Japan and Denver
What is a sister city?
Sister Cities are long-term
relationships; they are not just spur of the moment occurrences. They
are made based upon an understanding between the two cities. The two cities
make a joint set of priorities. These lists of priorities usually include
such things as economic cooperation, student exchanges, health care projects,
cultural programs, and municipal cooperation.
Does Denver have a sister
city in Japan?
Yes, Denver's sister city is Takayama. Takayama is set in the mountains of Gifu Prefecture. Takayama is, to some eyes, much like a smaller version of Kyoto. Takayama is mostly an agricultural setting. Takayama also has a lot of good timber for houses.
