On Friday April 28th 2017, 22 of the 25 Kobe PR Ambassadors visited Kobe City Hall to receive their Certificates of Appointment by the Mayor of Kobe. After being presented their certificates and hearing an encouraging speech by Mayor Kizo Hisamoto, they gave interviews with the press. Many PR Ambassadors spoke of their hopes and aims for the year, which they then had the opportunity to write down in Japanese on “shikishi” or decorative square boards. They presented them to each other, with many encouraging comments, setting the tone of friendship and determination for the year to come.
