The City of San Mateo and the City of Toyonaka, Japan established a sister city relationship in 1963 and have for fifty years been dedicated to promoting international goodwill, cultural exchanges between the 2 cities and their citizens, and ultimately breaking down barriers and promoting peace between our countries as originally envisioned by the Sister City International Association.
