Appointed by Yurihama Mayor Masamichi Miyawaki as a
one of the town’s community revitalization coordinators in April 2017,
Yoshimoto comedian Kato Appli (加藤アプリ) has been living and growing 20th Century pears in the Miyauchi district of Yurihama while working to promote Yurihama and its delicious and juicy pears to people all throughout Japan for the past 5 and a half months.

Kato Appli came to Yurihama as part of a joint project with the Yoshimoto Creative Agency Co. Ltd. meant to contribute towards efforts to advance sixth-sector industrialization (which involves vertical integration by agricultural producers by combining the processing and distribution of their products into their operations ) and promoting pear sales. The ultimate goal includes helping the rural farm industry improve profitability as well as helping to secure the next generation of farmers.

As the pear season kicks into full swing, Appli has been busy spreading the word about Yurihama and its appetizing pears while harvesting his own crop of 20th Century pears.

With 10 years of experience as a chef under his belt, Appli has additionally worked with Yurihama’s Restaurant Kikka to create the “Yurihama Triple Ramen,” which introduces Yurihama’s shijimi clams and hirame (flatfish) to the region’s famous gyūkotsu beef broth ramen. He also makes regular appearances at local events, where he has showcased Yurihama puns, including “arigatōgō “ (a play on words using “arigatō (thank you)” and Tōgō) and “Yurihamax.”
