In 1968 Governor Romney of Michigan and Governor Nozaki of Shiga Prefecture, Japan signed the agreement to establish a sister state relationship. This Michigan-Shiga partnership is the oldest and most comprehensive sister state relationship between the United States and Japan. Residents of Michigan and Shiga continue to maintain close ties through partnership activities between sister cities and exchanges involving students, teachers, community members and government officials.
