Greetings from Consul-General UCHIDA Tatsukuni

2021/4/12

Hello, nice to meet you all. I am UCHIDA Tatsukuni, and I have been appointed as the new Consul General of Japan in Calgary. I look forward to working with you.

To briefly introduce my career, I was born in downtown Tokyo, lived in the suburbs of Tokyo up until high school, and then I spent my university days in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Since joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I have been in charge of public relations, culture, and exchange programs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and have also worked at the Prime Minister’s office and the state Guest House. I have also worked abroad in Sweden, Singapore, Norway, Slovenia, and Iceland.

As for Canada, I have only attended a conference in Ottawa once coming from Tokyo, so I am very new here. Prior to this assignment here, many people around me gave detailed and enthusiastic explanations about Canada and the jurisdictions under this consulate. I would like to contribute as much as possible to the further development of all the wonderful relationships that have been already established up until now.

As the COVID-19 situation continues, I realize there are many hardships and worries for everyone. We will make further efforts to fulfill our duties as a Consulate General. Also, because of this particular situation, I would like to place even more importance on “connection” with everyone. Please feel free to contact us. I look forward to seeing you all both online and in person.
