Name:Si Ri Gu Leng
Term of Appointment:1st April, 2018
Hometown: Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China

I first arrived in Japan as a language exchange student in October, 1999. After graduating from Shizuoka University Graduate School I worked at a private company as a translator and interpreter. Over the long number of years living in Japan, I have had the opportunity to cultivate exchanges with numerous Japanese people. Through my work at Shizuoka City Hall, I hope to do my best in the promotion of multiculturalism in the city.


南アフリカで生まれ育ち 、子供の頃から日本のアニメとゲームが大好きです。いつか日本に行くのが僕の夢でした。 ケープタウン大学を卒業して、2017年にALTとして来日し、その夢が叶いました。3年半の間、英語を教えながら日本の文化に触れ、日本語力を上げてきました。ありがたいことに、結婚をし、一人息子がいます。僕の経験や日本語力を活かして、静岡に住んでいる色々な国籍の方々の味方になりたいです。国際理解を広げて、世界に輝く静岡の実現に向け、精一杯頑張りたいと思います。

Name: Hugh Stevenson
Term of Appointment: 1st April 2021
Hometown: Cape Town, South Africa

I grew up in South Africa with a love of Japanese anime and video games. It was my dream to visit Japan one day. After graduating from university in Cape Town I was able to fulfill that dream. I came to Japan as an Interac ALT in October 2017 and I’ve been here ever since! In the last 3 and a half years I’ve been busy teaching English, learning about the culture and working on my Japanese. I was also lucky enough to meet my wife here and now we have a son together! I look forward to using my Japanese ability and my experiences to help Shizuokans of all nationalities, promote multicultural understanding, and help make our city one of global standards.

CIR stands for Coordinator for International Relations, or “kokusai kouryuin” in Japanese.

The main duties of the CIRs include furthering Shizuoka’s sister city relations, promoting Shizuoka as a tourist destination and international conference site to the World; and engaging in a variety of tasks related to Shizuoka’s international relations, such as translation, interpretation, participation in international conferences, and assistance for guests from overseas. Moreover, in preparation for the 2020 Olympics, the CIRs will operate in a wide range of international events and will be participating, amongst other things, in deepening Shizuoka’s relations with Spain and Taiwan.

The CIRs also forge international exchange with residents of Shizuoka City. Every year, the CIRs make 70~80 visits to kindergartens, preschools, nursery schools and lifelong learning centres. The objective is to help foster a broad international perspective among the residents by introducing foreign cultures to them.

CIRs Si Ri Gu Leng,  Hugh Stevenson, Faustine Baudoux work on the 17th floor of the Shizuoka City Hall, in the International and Multicultural Affairs Division.
