Sister City Program
The Hanford-Setana Sister City Program is symbolized by the "Bridging of Waters" seal which promotes extending international friendship. Each city participates by sending a delegate committee overseas each year. The group usually consists of prominent city citizens and a group of local high school students. The Setana High School sends their entire upper class as delegates. The Setana group travels to Hanford in the winter while the Hanford group travels to Setana in the summer.
On September 1, 2005, Setana (瀬棚町), formerly from Setana District, absorbed the town of Kitahiyama (also from Setana District), and the town of Taisei (from Kudō District), to become the new and expanded town of Setana (せたな町) (now in Kudō District).
