MESSAGE

I am Honoka Hayashi, a new Yanmar Ambassador.
Ever since I joined Cerezo Osaka Ladies U-15 (now Cerezo Osaka Sakai Ladies)
in junior high school, I have been conscious of growing through playing football against opponents who are older and better than us. This year, I chose to play for a team in Sweden so that I can learn new things and grow more as a player and as a person.

Becoming an ambassador for Yanmar is an honor for me as the company continues to take on the challenge of creating a sustainable society. I would like to deliver the joy of women's football to everyone and continue to grow to bring excitement to many people. I hope my ambassador activity can be of some help in realizing a sustainable society.

Thank you so much for your continued support.
