Fall 2017

Mayor Dave Earling will lead a 12 person adult delegation of Edmonds citizens to the City's Sister City of Hekinan, Japan in Spring 2018. The two cities will celebrate 30 years of sister cityhood. Also in 2018, Hekinan will celebrate their 70th anniversary.

Highlights from the 2013 trip included: visits to the Toyota factory, fine art museums, cultural center, and Hekinan Seaside Aquarium, as well as a visit to the ancient capital city of Kyoto.

All participants of the delegation cover the expense of their trip which will include airfare, accommodations, meals and incidentals. Estimated costs will depend on flight prices.

Interested individuals should contact Carolyn LaFave in the Mayor's Office by phone at 425.771.0247 or by email.
