Boulder-Yamagata City Friendship Committee
The Sister City relationship between the residents of Boulder, Colorado and Yamagata, Japan has brought us together to eat, work and dance, to learn and exchange culture, people and gifts. Above all though, the experiences from this relationship allow us to grow as residents, enabling us to educate our family, friends and neighbors, increasing tolerance and harmony.
To increase international understanding, Boulder Channel 8 cooperates with the Yamagata Broadcasting Company by exchanging local television broadcast film footage.
Yamagata is located in northwest Japan in the prefecture of the same name. The city sits in a valley surrounded by mountains, and the region gets some of the heaviest snowfalls in Japan during the winter. There are about 250,000 residents, and Yamagata is only three hours from Tokyo by bullet train.
