How has interchange begun to be?

Himawarino-oka (Osaki-shi)

In the late 50s of the Showa era, Osaki-shi (former Sanbongi-cho) started sunflower cultivation by change of crops, and full-scale cultivation in Himawarino-oka began in 1987. (420,000 sunflowers bloom every year now.)
Because Yokohama citizen who visited this Himawarino-oka told that flower of Konan Ward was sunflower to the former Sanbongi-cho staff, interchange through sunflower began.

We held friendship meeting held in Konan Ward in February, 1989 and visited festival in spring when Konan Ward was held in former Sanbongicho in April, 1989, and we brought mini-sunflower 200 bowl, and Osaki-shi participated in Yokohama exhibition (Konan inhabitant of a ward day) in June, and intervisitation was performed.

Furthermore, Konan Ward elementary school student experienced homestay in Sanbongi in August of the year and deepened interchange for Sanbongi Elementary School elementary school student experiencing homestay in Konan Ward in March in the next year.
Interchange that children visited mutually continued until 1998, but performed interchange that adult of various local action groups visited mutually from 1999 to 2005 as the choice of acceptance became difficult.

Afterwards, with former Sanbongi-cho being merged with adjacent municipalities in 2006, and having become a part of "Osaki-shi", interchange for primary schoolchildren is revival. As "sunflower life experience-based interchange", we are following now.
