The Kobe PR Ambassadors are non-Japanese people who live, work or study in Kobe with a passion for the city, who share their experiences and promote Kobe in English via social media and online.
PR Ambassadors are appointed as volunteers for one year, during which time they deepen their knowledge and experience of Kobe through tours/events and newsletters, meet likeminded PR Ambassadors, and share their own Kobe with the world. Posts are shared on the Kobe PR Ambassadors official Facebook and Twitter accounts--hubs for all PR Ambassador activity.
