The Dalles Sister Cities Association

For nearly 30 years, The Dalles Sister Cities Association (TDSCA) has been promoting intercultural awareness and friendship between Miyoshi City, Japan and The Dalles.

Our mission is to build and sustain cross-cultural connections and mutual understanding with our sister cities and the larger global community. We accomplish this through education, exchanges, cultural events, partnerships and activities. Read more.
