2 Thai women have worked in a tourist infomation center in front of Yugawara station since last April. One day in this April, Ms.Latty,31, and Ms.Manacchaya, 25, who are from Thailand, show a map of Yugawara town to a Japanese tourist and gave her the way in fluent Japanese. They smiled and said, "We already know most tourist attractions in Yugawara."
Yugawara town employed the 2 women, who are great at communicating in Japanese, for guiding foreign tourists, but unfortunately they had had almost no chance to see foreign visitors for a year because of the influence of COVID-19. So they decided to spent all their working hours not only studying culture and history of Yugawara, but also visiting many restaurants and sightseeing spots in the town. Their tremendous effort has helped them grow a lot.
The 2 Thai staffs, who started their Facebook page to give anybody information about Yugawara in English last year, said,"We hope that articles on our Facebook page are helpful for everybody." Ms.Latty talked "I am willing to study more for guiding foreign tourists." and Ms.Manacchaya mentioned "I want to join some events to give visitors more information about attractive tourism of Yugawara."
A director of the information center said, ”I know how much effort they have made. They have already aquired enough skills as a staff. I'm sure that they are so helpful for us in the future.”
