photo: Daichi SuzukiI hereby commemorate the 8th Asian Winter Games Sapporo 2017 to be held in Sapporo and Obihiro in February 2017.
We believe that hosting international sports events in Japan has extraordinary significance not simply for enhancing our international athletic prowess but also for international exchange, regional promotion, and raising the citizenry’s interest in sports.
Expectation and interest in winter sports in Asia are rising, with the 8th Asian Winter Games to be followed by the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, Korea, in 2018 and the Winter Games in Beijing, China, in 2022. We would like to bring together citizens throughout Japan to help make the 8th Asian Winter Games Sapporo 2017 a driving force to energize Japan while also contributing to interest in and social momentum for winter sports in Asia. I will do my utmost to provide the support necessary for the games’ success.
Let me conclude by wishing for the success of the games and by expressing my deep admiration for all those involved, including the 8th Sapporo Asian Winter Games Organising Committee (SAWGOC), which has worked to realize this sports event.

Daichi Suzuki
Commissioner
