Japan Pavilion PR ambasador


Wakatsuki Yumi



Born June 27th, 1994
Chosen as one of the first members of Nogizaka 46 in August 2011. After her success as one of the central members, she decided to pursue her solo career from November 2018. Since then, she has been featured on various popular works, such as the TV drama series ”Kyou kara Ore Wa!!” and ”Atama ni Kitemo Tatakauna!” (both Nippon Television) and the movies ”Signal 100” and ”Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii (Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku).”

I am very honored to serve in this important role in the coming event. I visited Dubai in winter and spring 2019 through work and was charmed instantly after seeing Dubai's grand scenery and buildings and its gorgeous and clean streets. I also had the chance to visit the construction site of Expo 2020 Dubai, and was totally overwhelmed by the grand scale of the land. It is really exciting to imagine the number of people who will visit as well as the new interactions and discoveries the event may create. I am really looking forward to the completion of the building where the charms of Japan and Dubai will blend into a space of unimaginable fascination. As a Japanese person, I hope to convey the beauty and the charm of our country to the world through this role.
