Japanese Professional Footballer Shinji Kagawa Officially Appointed as Ambassador to Promote Japan Overseas
29.July.2017 | SPOT
Japanese professional footballer Shinji Kagawa has been appointed an official ambassador of “Relux,” a hotel booking site that offers a carefully selected line-up of the best hotels and ryokans around Japan. As an ambassador, Kagawa’s job will be to actively promote travel to Japan and the appeal of regions around Japan to the rest of the world.
In line with the news of his appointment, a video was officially released of Kagawa to promote Japanese ryokan, which is a traditional Japanese style inn.
Relux enables its members to pick the very best of Japan’s hotels and ryokan. The website showcases the uniqueness of each and every one of its listed hotels by detailing the culture, history and famous products surrounding their locations. They explain the establishment of each accommodation as well as the appeals of the regions they are situated in.
The reason behind Shinji Kagawa’s appointment lies in his extensive knowledge of Japan’s appeal and tourist attractions, as well as his experience living overseas for many years. As a footballer, Kagawa’s main focus has been his sport, but he expressed a deep desire to promote Japanese culture such as its fashion, food and lifestyle during his off season periods. It was therefore decided that he would become an official Relux ambassador.
The video released in line with his appointment shows him off season. He is located at the hot spring ryokan “Hakone Suishoen” which is a place listed on the Relux website. The video itself is a must-watch as we get to see Kagawa dressed in a yukata looking very relaxed while expressing his enthusiasm for Japanese ryokan, including hot springs and the tea ceremony.
Moreover, in conjunction with Kagawa being made an ambassador, Relux are hiring supporters to further promote their regions, meaning people in Japan can help spread the charm of Japan’s regions together with Shinji Kagawa, a man at the forefront of football worldwide!
