The Red Brick Bulletin - Akarenga Tsushin

 

In October 2009, the International Affairs Division of the Hokkaido Government began publishing an electronic newsletter called the Red Brick Bulletin (Akarenga Tsushin) in Korean and Chinese.The Red Brick Bulletin informs readers about Hokkaido by covering topics ranging from history and daily life to tourist attractions and cuisine.

In November 2010, the Canadian Coordinator for International Relations (CIR) working in the International Affairs Division of the Hokkaido Government put together the first English publication of the Red Brick Bulletin. The first issues of the bulletin drew connections mainly between Hokkaido and Canada, focusing primarily on the province of Alberta, with which Hokkaido has shared friendship and affiliation since 1980.

Starting in October 2016, the Red Brick Bulletin has taken on a larger goal. While continuing to honor the relationship between Alberta and Hokkaido, the bulletin will also begin to branch out and explore the ties Hokkaido shares with regions all over the world. Hokkaido. Expanding horizons.
