    Nogizaka46 appointed as Oita's first sightseeing envoy
    [​IMG]
    Nogizaka46 was officially appointed as Oita City's first "sightseeing special envoy", for tourism promotion, on May 7th. This happened after AKB48's Sashihara Rino (born in Oita) had been selected as Oita’s "sightseeing ambassador" on the beginning of the month.

    Members Hatanaka Seira (currently senbatsu member for their 2nd single "Oide Shampoo") and Eto Misa were also born in Oita City. The senbatsu members went to mayor Kugimiya Ban's office during their visit to promote their new song in Sashihara's birthplace, where they requested to also become a 'sightseeing ambassador'. However, since Sashihara had just been appointed as the Oita's ambassador (観光大使), the mayor decided to create a 'sightseeing special envoy' post (観光特使).

    When asked by the mayor, Hatanaka Seira commented how she really likes the city (where her family still lives) and couldn't drop her Oita dialect even after moving to Tokyo; members also mentioned how she and Eto Misa always talk about Oita and its charms.
