|The sister city partnership between Romainmotier-Envy and the former Oguni Town was signed on June 4, 1986.
An idea of establishing a sister city partnership was brought up when Mr.
Tokichi Takada, a music promoter of the Oguni Artist Village (the name
of an artist group) visited Oguni Town with Ms. Jane Mengedot, a soprano
singer, in 1985. @@Romainmotier-Envy was recommended as a sister city by
some members of the Oguni Artist Village. The official signing of the establishment
of the sister city partnership was held in 1986, on the occasion of the
30th anniversary of the establishment of Oguni Township.
Through the municipal merger conducted on April 1, 2005, Romainmotier-Envy
became one of Nagaokafs sister cities
On April 1, 2006, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the establishment
of Nagaokafs modern municipality, the sister city partnership was signed
again to confirm the continuation of the partnership.
