    asianbeat (hereafter referred to as ab): Welcome back, to Fukuoka! How long has it been since you were last in Kitakyushu?

    Yuuki Takada (Takada): I get to come back quite often for the "Kaette-kitaccha-ne! (帰ってきたっちゃねー!| lit.:I'm back home!)" events, one is also taking place during KPF2017. I guess it has been two or three months since I was last here!

    ab: Congratulations on your appointment as Kitakyushu City Tourism Ambassador! How are you feeling about it?

    Takada: It was a total shock!! I didn't think they would ask me to take on the responsibility for a second! It was such a surprise when I saw the movies and letters they had gathered from my mom, friend, Junpei Morita (a voice actor at my agency), as well as a teacher from my school (who helped me train as a voice artist). To be given such an incredible ceremony for my appointment as a tourism ambassador was such a blessing, it re-confirmed how much support I have received from so many people. I will give it everything I have and try to do even more from now on! There are some aspects of what is required for the "tourism ambassador" role that I am not exactly sure about, so I am a little bit nervous, but I will move forward at my own speed, and do everything I can to share Kitakyushu's most attractive features with others!

    ab: Do you have a message for your fans or our asianbeat readers both at home and abroad?

    Takada: I have not properly introduced myself, so let me begin by saying, my name is Yuuki Takada. I am a voice artist signed to MAUSU PROMOTION. I have just been appointed a tourism ambassador for Kitakyushu City. I will stay true to myself and share the charming appeal of my hometown Kitakyushu City and Fukuoka Prefecture. I am going to give everything I have to make sure that I play my part and contribute as a tourism ambassador, whether that involves touring around local areas or attending homecoming events. Thank you to everyone for all your support!
