Newly arrived Ambassador Bill Hagerty started his Twitter account today using the handle @ USAmbJapan. His first tweet read:
Konnichiwa, Japan! I look forward to the honor of presenting my credentials to His Majesty, the Emperor of Japan, tomorrow.
During his time in Japan, Ambassador Hagerty will share his thoughts as he carries out his official duties, and as he and his family rediscover Japan and meet with local communities. Tweets will be posted regularly in both English and Japanese.
Please use the hashtag #AmbHagerty (#ハガティ大使 in Japanese) to connect with Ambassador Hagerty.
