Minoh City and Lower Hutt City are sister cities with a formal relationship since 1995. Activities include regular visits to each city, school and cultural exchanges, education programmes, sister schools and Japanese cultural events at Hutt Minoh Friendship House in Lower Hutt.

Hutt Minoh House was developed by both cities and provides a focal point for the close relationship that the Wellington region has with Japan. It's managed by the Trust supported by the Hutt City Council.
