AUSTIN, Texas -- The city of Austin has 13 sister cities and one of them is in Japan.

Oita, Japan has been a Sister City to Austin since 1990. On Saturday, the Austin-Oita Sister City Committee held its third annual Oita Japan Festival.

From origami to Japanese calligraphy contests, guests had the chance to immerse themselves in Asian culture and even learn something new as well. The Austin-Oita sister city committee is hosting a delegation event in Japan this October.
