My name is Louise Dendy and I am delighted to be the first non-Japanese PR Specialist to work in the Kobe City Government. I will use my experience living in the city and working in the Government to bring a wide range of city news and tourist information to English speakers in Japan and further afield.
Louise implemented and manages the Kobe PR Ambassador scheme. The Kobe PR Ambassadors are 19 non-Japanese people who live, work or study in Kobe, appointed by the Kobe City Government on a volunteer basis to promote Kobe’s attractions and charms to the world in English through social media.
