Messages from tourism-oriented nation navigators
[Mr. Sho Sakurai]
I am Sho SAKURAI, and I am very excited to be appointed as the Japanese Tourism Promotion Representative. I will make every effort to encourage you to visit Japan, by introducing all the wonderful destinations in our country. I will be waiting for your visit here in Japan, so come enjoy endless discovery.

[Mr. Masaki Aiba]
I am Masaki Aiba of Arashi, and I have been appointed a tourism-oriented nation navigator for Japan.
I will try my best to do a good job communicating the wide-ranging appeal of Japan to you.
I look forward to seeing you in Japan!

[Mr. Jun Matsumoto]
Good afternoon.
I am Jun Matsumoto of Arashi.
I have been appointed a tourism-oriented nation navigator for Japan.
I have twice visited Korea—one of my favorite countries—to perform Arashi concerts.
I would like you to enjoy the special appeal that Japan offers.
I look forward to seeing you in Japan!

[Mr. Satoshi Ono]
I am very glad that we, as the members of Arashi, have been appointed tourism-oriented nation navigators for Japan. I think that traveling abroad affords many opportunities to make diverse discoveries, allowing us to reflect on ourselves and those moments of significant change in our lives.
I enjoy fishing, now one of my favorite hobbies, and have traveled a lot to go fishing. By seeing beautiful islands and feeling the kindness of many people, I can understand the appeal of travel everyday.
I will do my utmost to help foreigners better understand Japan and experience the comfort and wonders of travel through the activities of Arashi members serving as navigators!

[Mr. Kazunari Ninomiya]
I am Kazunari Ninomiya, and I have been appointed a tourism-oriented nation navigator for Japan.
I hope this appointment gives me more opportunities to visit the many attractive places in Japan and meet the people living there, so that I can better introduce the appeal of travel to the people in Japan and in other countries.
I have lived in Japan for 26 years, but still make new discoveries everyday.
Why don't you make an endless discovery in Japan with people from all over the world?
