gave an address, saying let's cooperate for the success.

Mr. Kentaro Nakaya, the chairman of the Yufuin Sightseeing Committee,
introduces Mr. Seiji Yoneta who was newly installed in April

After we toasted to cooperate for the successful festival,
we enjoyed pleasant chatting over delicious dishes.
