KatoAppli

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.”

2016.11.29 (Tue)

On 16 October 2016, Yurihama hosted the 3rd annual Yurihama Celestial Maiden Walk (天女ウォーク) in conjunction with the 6th annual World Trails Conference held in the Tottori Prefecture of Japan. There were 3 different courses available, including the 4km Laid-Back & Lively Walk (らくらく&わんぱくウォーク) especially for families and young children, the 5km Lake Togo & Retro Streetscape Course (東郷湖とレトロな街並みウォーク) for those wanting a comfortable and celestial-maiden-walk-2refreshing walk, and the 18km Lake Togo & Mt. Uma Walk (東郷湖と馬ノ山を巡る道ウォーク) for those looking for a challenge and the chance to really experience the history and natural beauty of Yurihama. In total, there were approximately 870 walkers who participated, with an additional 40 who took part in a special tour course held the day before.

The departure ceremonies were kicked off with a hula performance by local hula group Friendship Hawaii as well as remarks by Mayor Masamichi Miyawaki. Those participating in the 4km and 5km walks were treated to a special appearance by Olympic gold medalist Mr. Kenji Ogiwara (who also joined in as a guest walker), governor of Tottori Prefecture Mr. Shinji Hirai, and Japanese actress Ms. Miori Takimoto.

There were pear-tasting stations, a ground golf hole-in-one game, and various shops and vendors set up as well, creating a fun and festive atmosphere. Participants were invited to try shijimi clam miso soup, made using the large shijimi clams from Lake Togo, ogre-shaped sweets made by the Oniyome Demon Bride Association, and much, much more!
