10 exchange students from Japan arrive in Troy for 5-day visit

Ten junior high school students from Troy’s sister city, Takahashi City, Japan, arrived overnight Saturday in Troy.

They are here for a five-day visit and will stay with their chaperones in the homes of host families.

It took the student delegation 30 hours to travel the 6,700 miles from Takahashi City to Troy.

Next summer, it’ll be Troy’s turn to send a student delegation to Japan. The exchange allows the students to see just how much they have in common.

This student exchange program has been going on for nearly 30 years.
