Dear everyone,

Do kindly allow me to express my sincerest hope for your good health and prosperity.

I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed to continue the position of Board Chairwoman of the Kitakyushu International Association.

When I took over this position in 2022 from Honorary Chairman Toshio Takagi, who had served as the Association’s Chairman for many years, the new coronavirus infection situation had settled down, and we had just begun to implement projects that had been restricted in the past.

The number of foreigners working in Japan continues to increase, and it is expected that the number of foreign citizens in Kitakyushu City and the surrounding areas will also continue to grow.

As the chairwoman, I will continue to strive for the realization of a multicultural society where people with different cultures and customs respecting each other.

Yours Sincerely,

Board Chairwoman Fukuhara Kimiko
Kitakyushu International Association
