The City of Belmont has built a 32 year relationship with its Sister City, Adachi-ku in Tokyo, Japan. The City of Belmont entered into a Sister City relationship with the Special Ward of Adachi-ku in Tokyo, in October of 1984. The mainstay of this relationship since its inception has been the annual Student Exchange Program.
The Sister City relationship promotes cultural and educational exchanges between the two cities.
Each year City of Belmont students travel to Adachi in early January to experience Japanese culture and customs. Similarly, students from Adachi-ku visit the City of Belmont in July-August where they explore the City and the wider Perth region and participate in cultural tours, school visits and sightseeing. Students are home hosted by local Belmont families, which contributes to their cultural experience and offers them an opportunity to improve their English language skills.
The City of Belmont works in close partnership with the Belmont Sister City Association to ensure tours are well planned and managed.
