Congratulations to all of the students selected to travel to Kashiwa, Japan as part of the Torrance Sister City Association exchange program! Also a huge thank you goes out to our TSCA volunteers who contribute throughout the year to make these experiences possible!


A group of high school students from Torrance will represent the City in a cultural exchange this summer.

Since 1973, the city of Torrance has enjoyed a relationship with Kashiwa, Japan, through the Sister City Program. The objective of the program is to provide citizens in both countries with an opportunity to discover the similarities and differences of each city, and to promote international friendship.

One of the activities includes a student cultural exchange program, which was introduced in 1974. Selected students from Torrance will have the opportunity to travel to Kashiwa for three weeks this summer to experience Japanese culture and customs first-hand.

In exchange, Kashiwa students visit Torrance for three weeks to learn more about life in the United States.

Selected students have been chosen from Torrance high schools and will be announced at tonight’s City Council meeting.
