The first agreement between the University of Marburg and Tenri University,signed in 1996,stated that it was “based on the foundation of the friendly relationship between Tenri University and Philipp- University of Marburg,which has lasted for more than 30years." This paper summarizes the exchanges that have taken place between the two universities from 1990to the present. Since 1990,collaborative religious studies symposiums,musical concerts,art exhibitions,and judo exchanges have occurred,and language training sessions and sports exchanges have been conducted on a regular basis. Since 2013, a city sports training program is being operated,with the permission and cooperation of the town of Marburg and the University of Marburg. A friendly relationship between the town of Marburg and the city of Tenri has also developed; this relationship grew even stronger after the mayor of Marburg visited Tenri University and the city of Tenri in March and April 2015.
