The "asianbeat / FACo Kawaii Ambassadors" finally got together!

小川福岡県知事 asianbeat・FACo Kawaii大使
Out of a total of 560 applicants, 8 "asianbeat / FACo Kawaii Ambassadors" were chosen, 2 each from China, Thailand, Vietnam and Taiwan through a web vote that took place on the asianbeat website. On Thursday 16th March they paid a visit to the Governor of Fukuoka Prefecture. Governor Ogawa greeted the group and said to the slightly nervous Kawaii Ambassadors that he would like to see them build bridges with Fukuoka. At the meeting, the Kawaii Ambassadors were presented with "Eto (Japanese Zodiac) Macaron" themed Hakata Ningyo (dolls) as commemorative gifts. They all spoke about how much they were looking forward to participating in FACo which was held on March 18th and promoting all that Fukuoka has to offer back home.
