Rosenheim city is located south-east of Munich, the capital of Bavaria
and has had a partner city agreement with Ichikawa since 2002.
We plan mutual exchanges of middle school students through sports and citizen's friendship delegations. The Ichikawa Board of Education mainly manages these which take place every year. When a group of Ichikawa citizens visit Rosenheim, they hold a Japan Festival and Ichikawa holds a German Day which many people have come to enjoy whenever a Rosenheim delegation comes to Ichikawa.
The meeting, preparing for the civil delegation from Rosenheim next year
We held it with Ms. Krumholtz, city and IIA staffs.
German Day 2014The German Day was held in September, 2014 at Colton Field. It was fine day and many people have already gathered when the opening ceremony started. There were long lines to get the German beer and sausages under the strong sunshine. The Alps music band and cute kids showed the music and dance. We regret not to see many German this time. We hope more German participate this special occasion. This is the comment of the person who came to this festival.
