Shizuoka City Tourism Goodwill Ambassador Ms. Rio MORI
- Hello everyone !
I am Shizuoka City Tourism Goodwill Ambassador Rio MORI.
As someone who loves her hometown of Shizuoka, I am proud and thankful for being assigned such a significant duty.
Although Shizuoka is blessed with a pleasant climate year-round, every change of season can be experienced clearly through its beautiful nature and delicious ingredients.
Recently, a plethora of charming caf?s have opened in the central part of town, and I particularly love relaxing at a terrace in Gofuku-cho, or as I have lunch in Kuno with a sea view.
Shizuoka’s green tea, renowned for being one of its charms, has shops that have been blending tea to make modern mixes. Residents of Shizuoka definitely have a knack for blending traditional and modern!
I must not forget to mention Shizuoka’s greatest pride, the National Treasure Kunozan Toshogu.
This place means a lot to me. I have been going to pray to Kunozan Toshogu since I was little, so I have a strong attachment to it. Honestly, I believe that praying to Ieyasu helped me win the Miss Universe title!
In the future, I hope to share the culture and fantastic traditions of Shizuoka with as many people as possible. I hope everyone can find an interest in this city and want to visit it. I promise, you’ll find yourself relaxed by the end of your stay, and perhaps you’ll even discover a new you.
I await you in Shizuoka City!

- I am Shizuoka City Tourism Goodwill Ambassador, SHUNPUTEI Shota
I am honored to have been given such an important role from my hometown, Shizuoka City!
It was after I left Shizuoka for the first time, that I realized what a wonderful a place it was. When you live there, as a local, you get to spend your day seeing its charms and become blind to them, however, Shizuoka City really has it all, and I think it is a charming city that is very easy to live in.
Surrounded by nature, mountains and sea alike, with a view of the magnificent Mt. Fuji, and delicious foods ? where even the tap water is delicious, which is unusual for such a big city! It would really be brilliant if more people got to know all those good things about Shizuoka. I am only a goodwill ambassador and my power is limited but I will strive to let people know what a delightful place Shizuoka is.
Shizuoka City Tourism Goodwill Ambassador Ms. ASUMI Rio
- I am Shizuoka City Tourism Goodwill Ambassador, former member of the Takarazuka Revue, ASUMI Rio.
I am extremely honored for the opportunity to become a Goodwill Ambassador for my hometown, Shizuoka City.
Shizuoka is a city where you can feel at ease, surrounded by nature, living to the rhythm of the 4 seasons. The rustic and calm atmosphere are what I love most about the city, and I hope more people will come and experience this relaxed and tranquil ambience for themselves.
In middle school, I saw a performance of the Takarazuka Revue and instantly became obsessed with it; which is why I decided to enter the Takarazuka Music School. I trained hard every day and succeeded in making my childhood dream come true: I can now stand on stage!
I would like to send hope to all of the children of Shizuoka City pursuing their dreams.
By giving better performances, I hope to be serving Shizuoka City. I humbly ask for your support.
