Nagasawa Masami named as travel ambassador for Taiwan
Nagasawa Masami has been named as the travel ambassador for Taiwan as announced during a press conference by the Taiwan Tourism Board at Taipei on 17 October. During the event, Nagasawa commented that she had grown to love Taiwan when she was there for the filming of a Taiwanese drama in 2014 and was impressed by how warm the locals were to her so she hopes that more Japanese tourists will go to Taiwan for their holidays. The CMs featuring her will be shown in Japan from late November.
Tourist numbers from Japan increased by about 20% to 1.2 million people in the period between January and August this year.
