Introducing our Connection to France Publication of Special Edition of City PR Magazine

Yamanashi Prefecture

Since the establishment of Fujiyoshida’s sister-city relationship with Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France on October 9, 1978, our two cities have continued to share in a wide range of meaningful cultural exchanges and deepen our friendship. In addition, through our designation as an Olympic Host Town for France in June 2016, our city has embarked on numerous new efforts to promote international friendship through cultural exchanges with France.

In March 2020, in celebration of our sister-city relationship with Chamonix Mont-Blanc — first established due to the mountain-to-mountain connection between Mont-Blanc, the highest mountain in the French Alps, and Mount Fuji, the highest peak in the Japan — a special edition of the monthly Fujiyoshida City PR magazine was published to introduce the special bond between the two cities and the various cultural exchanges that we’ve had the opportunity to share with France as a result.

The publication featured scenes from our work as the official training camp for the French national rugby team during the 2019 Rugby World Cup™ in Japan including photos of their training as well as their welcome ceremony and exchanges with the public.

We hope to continue developing a wide range of programs to promote international friendship and to establish and lasting legacy here in our region as we prepare for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
