Sister Cities | Mombetsu, Japan And Newport Oregon

The City of Mombetsu, Japan located in northeast Hokkaido and Newport, Oregon are sister cities.  They formed this relationship in 1966.

Ten years later, in 1976, the Rotary Club in Newport built a dedicated park on Southwest Neff Way in honor of its sister city. It's small!

It is a little over a half acre but, what there is, is beautiful and, meticulously cared for.

It's located on side street and sort of out of the way. Worse, you can drive right by it and not see it.

Just too bad that it couldn't have been constructed in one of the tourist areas like Nye Beach, not just for the locals to see but, the tourist, too!
