The Japan Foundation Sydney has a new staff member! Hikari has joined as the new mascot to promote the foundation’s motto of “Bringing Japan to You”. I met up with her briefly today.

Hikari has been busy trying out different roles at the foundation, but she was able to take some time out to show me around the office and also to take me to her favorite ramen place for lunch!

When I left Hikari was busy brainstorming with foundation staff the details of an exciting competition to be run at SMASH! next week.

The details are hush-hush but get your creative juices running because there will be some great prizes, including:

  • Winner – One autographed copy of ‘Bleach: Fade to Black’ (signed by Noriyuki Abe & Masakazu Morita) PLUS $100 Kinokuniya Voucher
  • 2 x Runner Ups – $50 Kinokuniya Voucher

The full details of how to enter the competition will be posted on the JPF website late next week.
