Become a member (or renew your membership) and support the Society.

The mission of the Spokane-Nishinomiya Sister City Society is to promote goodwill between the people of Spokane, Washington and Nishinomiya, Japan through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation with cultural, educational and economic activities and exchanges.

We encourage all Spokane citizens to be actively involved by becoming members, attending Society events, hosting exchange guests, assisting with fundraisers, planning events, and participating in various other activities.

Society business and planning meetings are usually held the first Thursday of every month starting at 7:30 p.m. at Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute. You are welcome to attend but first check with Roland Herriges, our Society President at
