Our office was already established in 1962 in Hamburg, even before the port became the sister port of Yokohama. This year we are celebrating the 20. anniversary after the relocation to Frankfurt. On November 15th, we celebrated this event with a lunch together with the many persons who have always supported us. We were lucky to have deputy mayor Ursula Fechter and deputy consul Yoshitaka Tsunoda as our guests who said some greeting words.
The executive directors Mr. Isamu Ishikawa from the International Affairs Bureau and Mr. Noriaki Okura from the Climate Change Policy Office visited Frankfurt on this behalf and took the opportunity to meet Wiebke Fiebig, executive director of the Energy Department Frankfurt, in the morning in the Römer town hall and to talk about Frankfurt’s new climate protection campaign. After the anniversary lunch, they had the chance to visit the Industry Park Höchst and to join a guided tour in one of the newly implemented hydrogen buses.
