Chatono: Promoting Chattanooga Tono Friendship

The Chattanooga Tono Friendship Committee – Chatono was established in 2015 as a grassroots initiative to deepen ties between the cities of Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA and Tono, Iwate, Japan.

Based on a relationship of friendship and trust built from years of international exchange, the Chattanooga Tono Friendship Committee aims to establish an official connection between Chattanooga and Tono by becoming sister cities, in addition to continuing our successful student exchanges and expanding our joint activities to culture, business, tourism, and other mutually beneficial areas.
