Gifu Sister City Committee (GSCC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, advancing, and communicating information about Gifu City (Japan) and Cincinnati (Ohio, USA), their culture, sports, art, economic activities; and promoting a deeper understanding and relationship between the two cities.
Gifu and Cincinnati became sister cities in May, 1988. Gifu City donated 100 sakura (cherry) trees to Eden Park in 1990, and another 110 cherry trees to Eden Park, Ault Park and Northern Kentucky University in 1998.
GSCC was re-established in June, 2008, under the Cincinnati USA Sister City Association to maintain and grow the relationship between the two cities. We gratefully acknowledge the help of the City of Cincinnati in encouraging the rebirth of GSCC.
