“Shinjuku Miyazaki kan KONNE” renewed as a gateway of Japanese Hinata, is where you can experience Miyazaki while being in Tokyo.
Ahead of the renewal opening, a sneak preview for the media was held today. A popular comedian duo from the Miyazaki Prefecture “とろサーモン (Toro Samon)” appeared as a special guest and introduced the charm and appeal of their hometown in Miyazaki.
They even tried the “Nishimera Samon don (Salmon bowl)” which used was praised as “really delicious!”. They also tasted the ‘Hyuga Summer Ice Cream’ and introduced a Miyazaki eating style, as he explained, “If you use soy sauce in Hyuga summer, it will be more delicious”!
After that, Governor of Miyazaki Prefecture “Mr. Kono” appeared and greeted the crowd passionately.
The bronze statue of Mr. Yoichi Nukumizu which was set up at Miyazaki airport became a large subject for discussion,followed by a second bronze statue of Toro Samon, which was shown off at this event for the very first time. The realistic bronze statue effect was created by painting gypsum over the faces of both statues. There were expressions from the public of awe and joy as people could be heard saying that “It looks alive and scary”.
A statue of “Toro Samon” sitting on the porch will welcome customers until 31st May!
