Gawr Gura, Mori Calliope, and Sakura Miko Named Tokyo Tourism Ambassadors

Hololive announced three of its Vtubers are going to be 2023 Tokyo Tourism Ambassadors. Sakura Miko, who is a Japanese Vtuber, and the Hololive EN members Gawr Gura and Mori Calliope were picked. This means that the three will all talk about the city of Tokyo and their experiences there. The tweet announcing the hallmark specifically noted they will discuss “attractions” in the city. Calliope noted in December 2022 that she was in Japan. In January 2023, Gura also announced she was in the country.

This means three of the 16 new Tokyo Tourism Ambassadors have been named. The Tokyo Government announced on Twitter that it picked the new goodwill associates on February 8, 2023. However, it didn’t name any of the other 13 people.

However, it is possible that some of the additional ambassadors aren’t actually people. In 2015, Godzilla was named a Tokyo Tourism Ambassador.

Hololive didn’t announce what sorts of measures Sakura Miko, Gawr Gura, or Calliope Mori will take to promote Tokyo. However, Gura did note she expects to end her health-related hiatus before Valentine’s Day 2023. Ahead of this announcement, she also shared the following tweet teasing her return.

Sakura Miko is one of the first Hololive Vtubers. Gawr Gura and Calliope Mori are both part of Hololive EN Myth.
