Kawamata-Machi”s “Norte Japon” wins the Japan Foundation’s 2016 Global Citizen Award


 The award ceremony took place on February 28th in Tokyo.

 This year, there were 3 recipients of the award, and one of those was Kawamata-machi’s Norte Japon (in charge of the Cosquin en Japon event).
 The award itself celebrates its 32nd anniversary, as an award given to those who’ve made exceptional efforts in the form of international and cultural exchanges throughout Japan. In Fukushima, in 2011, the non-profit corporation known as “The People” won the board chairmen’s special award, and since then, two other organizations within Fukushima have been honoured with awards.

 Mr. Hiroyuki Saito attended as the representative for Norte Japon, and received a plaque and prize from the Board Chairman of the Japan Foundation, Mr. Hiroyasu Andou.
