City Mascot Izumi-hime’s Travel Diary
Hi everyone! My name is Izumi-hime and I am the mascot of Kizugawa City.
Here I am (right) with Mayumaro the Mascot of Kyoto Prefecture (left)!
I’ve been studying a little English on my free time and thought it would be a fun project to translate some of my diaries so people all over the world can read it and learn about our great city! Please take a look at my page with my introduction and travel diary where I cover my adventures around Kizugawa.
I’m sure you’ll just love it!
