The International Club is a platform for members to promote Kobe and provide useful information about the city.
The first branch of the club, the “Kobe International Club Silicon Valley” was founded on February 29, 2016. This branch mainly consists of Kobe University Alumni Association’s San Francisco branch members, who met the Mayor during his visit to San Francisco in June, 2016.
The Mayor will promote this initiative, calling upon local groups to consider founding their own branches of the Kobe International Club on various occasions such as overseas business trips.
