About the Speaker
Koichiro Mizobe is the Inbound Manager at the tourism strategy and promotion Office of the Oita Prefectural Government. After graduating from Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) in Oita, he left his hometown for a job. Since Oita is such a nice place to live (of course a nice place to visit too), he returned home and started working for the prefectural government. Not only does he love his hometown, but Oita has so much to offer. Mr. Mizobe is delighted to introduce Oita Prefecture in this presentation.
