Relationship between Minoh City and Cuernavaca City

 

Minoh City has been supporting students from the State University of Morelos who study Japanese language and culture. Also, it promotes the friendship and mutual understanding through homestay programs and cultural exchanges since 1992.

Since 1992, students from the State University of Morelos have been stuying the Japanese language, and about 160 students have come to study the Japanese culture.

On the other hand, the citizens of Minoh founded a club called "Club de la Amistad de Minoh y Mexico (C.A.M.M.)"(2000), whose core are the host families in Minoh. The club aims to increase the awareness about South and Central America and promote the friendship with those countries. The club is also active in exchanges between cities of Cuernavaca and Minoh.

The International Friendship Cities Agreement was conducted on 12 October, 2003, to promote citizen exchanges, mutual understanding and to develop a good relationship between the cities.
