The  SPNSCC was commissioned as the first Japanese-American city partnership in 1955. Its purpose is to promote beneficial relationships between the American and Japanese people in the two cities, and to promote the cause of peace.  Their first programs helped the city of Nagasaki recover from the damage it sustained from nuclear bombing during World War II.  Today, they continue to connect Japanese and American cultures through grass-roots ambassadorship and to promote Japanese culture in the greater Twin Cities metro area.
