Columbia has three sister cities in Asia; one each in China, South Korea and Japan.

COLUMBIA — For 25 years, Columbia has been closely tied with Hakusan, Japan, one of its five sister cities. A reception celebrating the relationship will be held from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Monday at the Daniel Boone City Building.

The event will include a welcoming of the Hakusan International Association delegation, as well as a gift exchange and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Matto Photograph Club's Portrait of Sister City exhibit. 

Hakusan was created in 2005 after Matto City merged with several other western Japanese cities. Columbia and the Hakusan area have been linked since 1988.
