Students and teachers have been traveling and and exchanging cultures between Columbus, IN and Miyoshi, Japan since the mid to late 1990's.  Traditionally a contingency of students and teachers from Miyoshi travel to Columbus in late summer/early fall, and then a BCSC teacher will travel to Miyoshi in late fall as the Education Ambassador. 

The formal relationship between the cities occurred July 5, 1994 with the signing of a cultural partnership agreement by Mayor Bob Stewart and Mayor Michio Tsukamoto. The formal resolution for the twinning is November 30, 1994.  Miyoshi's introduction to the Columbus community began with business introductions of Gerry Seim and Dick Yamamoto.
