Astro boy, who has served as the Future Envoy of Shinjuku since April 7, 2003, his birthday, was appointed to the Special Pupil of Shinjuku. The voice of local residents, “Why don’t we celebrate the entrance of new elementary school students with Astro boy who was born in the same year, motivated the local government to appoint him the Special Pupil.
On April 6, Astro boy participated in the entrance ceremony held at Shinjuku Totsuka Dai-san Elementary School with other new students and was appointed to the Special Pupil. He seemed very excited being welcomed by a lot of children, including new students.
From now on, Astro boy will participate in various events in the area together with elementary school students, learning more about local communities.
