RAPID CITY (AP) — Students from Rapid City's sister city in Japan are getting a little taste of America.
Ten middle and high school students from Nikko City in Japan are in the Black Hills through the end of the month.
The media reports that Rapid City Mayor Sam Kooiker named the students honorary citizens Monday morning before the group headed to the city's downtown area.
The students will visit many of the area's famous attractions, including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the Badlands.
Kotsuke Watanabe says he is excited because he is able to experience things he couldn't in Japan.
