In October 2018, Hokusei welcomed  the Director of Retail at the Portland Japanese Garden in Sapporo.  Portland and Sapporo are sister cities and they will celebrate 60th anniversary in 2019. She looked for not only goods in Sapporo but also cultures and arts in Hokkaido. 

Portland Japanese Garden has a great plan to celebrate the anniversary as in their blog.
