Message from Chair of LANSCA, 2019
Hello and thank you for visiting this website. Please explore. I think you will find it as interesting as it is informative. Let me tell you more about organization and what we are planning this year.
On March 31, 1959, the sister city relationship between Los Angeles and Nagoya, Japan was born as a part of President Eisenhower’s Citizens’ International Exchange Program. For both cities, it was the first sister city relationship. A few years later the Los Angeles Nagoya Sister City Affiliation (known as LANSCA) was formed. LANSCA is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Over the years LANSCA has worked with its counterpart in Nagoya to establish and carry out many cultural, civic, educational and, most recently, commercial exchange programs. Other pages on this site will explain some of those programs and more detail about LANSCA’s history.
