MetadataShow full item record
This report on Japan-Texas sister-city relations is the result of a policy research project conducted in 1989-90 under a grant from the Japan-United States Friendship Commission. The principal sources for this report are interviews with sister-city directors, an April conference of sister-city participants, and detailed research. Participating students also prepared a study of municipal budgeting practices in Japan and Texas. In addition, the students conducted comparative studies of Kumamoto castle Park and the San Antonio River Walk. The policy research project team hopes that its findings will prove useful to individuals involved in sister-city relations.
