In 1996, a New Zealand-wide survey of Sister City programmes, done as part of an initiative by Asia 2000 and undertaken by Massey University, showed that the Nelson-Miyazu link was the most-focused and built on a solid base of people-to-people interaction.  The Nelson Miyazu affiliation was cited as a model to follow in setting up successful Sister City relationships, including these features:

  • Festivals
  • Fashion show
  • Cultural events, concerts, performances and demonstrations
  • Art exhibition and educational tuition
  • Girl Guide mini jamboree
  • Support from Miyazu for “Sudden Laughter”
  • Anti-nuclear visit to Mururoa
  • Trade exposition
  • Financial support for Nelson’s Miyazu Garden – on-going
  • Cherry Blossom festival
  • Celebration of childrens’ day with Japanese community
  • School and college exchanges
  • Numerous student and young people’s work experience
  • Tourism
