Matsuyama Elementary School is named after Sacramento’s sister
city in Japan. We also have a sister school in Matsuyama,
Japan, named Sakura Elementary School. At least a couple of
times a year, we have live video chats with our friends in
Japan. We sing songs together, share our talents, and what
we are learning in school with each other.
On March 9, 2012, Consul General Hiroshi Inomata participated in
the Sacramento Matsuyama Elementary School Cherry Blossom
Festival. Many people turned out for the event, including
students, parents, school staff, as well as the local community.
