A delegation from the Japanese city of Shibetsu is being welcomed in Goulburn today as part of the growing sister relationship between the two.

 

The visit marks 20 years since a formal connection was made by the then Goulburn city council mayor, Margaret O'Neill.

 

Shibetsu delegation members are spending three days here and will be treated to a number of mayoral receptions and events.

 

These include a dedication ceremony of the traditional Japanese garden- the Shibetsu Garden- being built in Victoria Park.

 

Mayor, Bob Kirk says he has been looking forward to the visit as an opportunity to strengthen cultural, social and economic connections between the two regions.
