Biographical Info

MISCA, established in 1980, is a not-for-profit organization established to build good will, friendships and opportunities between two cities: Minneapolis and Ibaraki, Japan. Ibaraki is a city with a population of about 250,000 and is located between Osaka and Kyoto. Working together with Osaka (the third largest city in Japan) Ibaraki has developed strong biotech research and is home to such large manufacturing plants as Matsushita and Toshiba. Kyoto, on the other had is the “old,” historic, religious center of Japan.

Among the activities MISCA sponsors are cultural, educational, sporting, artistic, youth, and business exchanges. The goal of these efforts is to provide a better understanding and appreciation on one another as we reach out to make new friends.
