Welcome to Mission

Japanese visitors toured a number of Mission attractions

A delegation from Mission’s sister city, Oyama, Japan, has been in the district since last week, visiting a number of local attractions and taking part in several activities. Left to right: On Tuesday, the group was at the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce Oyama Friendship Garden to reopen the renovated space. Oyama Mayor Komiyama Musahide and Mission Mayor Ted Adlem cut the ribbon, with chamber president Sean Melia. A tree was also planted in honour of the delegation’s visit. The Japanese visitors were also invited to Mayor Ted Adlem’s annual golf tournament held last Sunday at Cedar Ridge Golf Course. Here, Musahide tees off from the first hole.
