Sushi. Samurai. Anime. Ninjas. Manga.

Do these things interest you?
How about karate or karaoke?
Did you know that sushi isn’t really raw fish?
And just as Japan is the land of the rising sun, so is Maine?
That Maine is Sister State with the northernmost prefecture on the island of Honshu, Aomori, which translates as Blue (Pine) Forest?
Want to learn more?

Would you like to Travel to Japan this summer?
Our next trip to Japan is July 31 - August 11, 2014.

Join us for the trip of a lifetime!
Each summer, a group of students and adults from the Bath area travel to Japan to visit our Sister City, Tsugaru. There, the travelers stay with Host Families, and tour extensively by day and participate in local festivals. The warm hospitality and rich experience of the visit is amazing and life changing - an introduction to a wonderful culture!

This yearly exchange between Bath and Shariki, now renamed Tsugaru City as it merged with other villages, has been going on for 20 years. You’ll be following in the footsteps of hundreds of students, symbolizing “friendship across the seas.”
