On May 7th, it was revealed that Nogizaka46 had been appointed as the first 'sightseeing envoy' of Oita City. They will promote tourism alongside AKB48's Sashihara Rino, who was selected as Oita's 'sightseeing ambassador' last month.
Just like Sashihara, 2 members of Nogizaka46 were born in Oita City. When the group visited mayor Kugimiya Ban to promote their new song in late-April, they requested to also become the 'sightseeing ambassador'. "We would like to promote Oita City also," they negotiated. However, the mayor explained, "Sashihara-san was just appointed as the ambassador," and decided to create a 'sightseeing envoy'.
A responsible party of the city commented, "With Sashihara-san, we want them to introduce Oita's charms to people nationwide."
