The sister city relations between Odessa and Yokohama were established in 1965. On September 2, 2015, roses-flowers, a symbol of the city of Yokohama, were planted near the Potemkin stairs in Odessa. Further cooperation is supported through holding cultural and humanitarian events in both Ukraine and Japan.

In addition, from 19 to 25 October in the cafe "JICA Yokohama" Ukrainian dishes will be presented, and from 1 to 31 October at the Yokohama Puppet Museum there will be an exposition of traditional dolls of Ukraine.

The Embassy of Ukraine in Japan expresses its sincere gratitude to the Yokohama City Hall, as well as to the photographers Aleksandr Gimanov and Katsutaro Hirayama for their cooperation in the implementation of this project!
