TOMODACHI/NAJAS Ofunato-San Diego Youth Baseball Exchange


San Diego – Ofunato Exchange 2013

In August, Japanese baseball players (ages 13-14) from the City of Ofunato will come to San Diego for home stays, baseball clinics/games, and cultural activities. This is the first leg of the second round of exchange with Ofunato. which have been funded by our generous sponsors.  This exchange started in 2013 out of support for Japan’s recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake, to invest in the next generation of Japanese and American leaders through educational and cultural exchanges as well as entrepreneurship and leadership programs.

San Diego baseball players participating this year will have a chance of participating in 2016 when San Diego players will travel to Japan to experience Japanese baseball and culture.

Time: August 4 ~ 12, 2015 (8 nights)
