The Olympia-Kato Sister City Association (OKSCA) was incorporated as a non-profit in 1981. The mission of the OKSCA is to promote friendship and cultural exchanges between the citizens of the Olympia/Thurston County area and the city of Kato, Japan.
Oshogatsu in Olympia 2013 was a huge success! A record number of visitors (nearly 3,000!) enjoyed traditional Japanese foods, live entertainment and cultural activities at this educational community outreach event. Check out these photos of event highlights and plan to attend our next celebration in January 2014.
