With students of Kyoto Prefectural Sagano High School

Before his arrival in Montreal, Consul General Izawa visited Hiroshima City, sister city to Montreal, and Kyoto Prefecture, with which Quebec has signed a friendship and collaboration agreement. Mr. Izawa thus had chance to meet with Mr. Takatoshi Nishiwaki, Governor of Kyoto Prefecture, and Mr. Kazumi Matsui, Mayor of Hiroshima, to discuss various topics in regards to bilateral relations. He also visited Kyoto Prefectural Sagano High School, which sends a group of students to Quebec every year, and met with both students who have visited Quebec and students who will do so in the near future.

These visits constituted an important opportunity to share information on current and future bilateral relations between Japanese local authorities and Quebec.
