Six sightseeing attendants for the Nishikikawa-Seiryu Line that runs through in Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture were selected.

The sightseeing attendant is a project that the Nishikikawa Railload started in 2009.

The attendants, putting on the uniform of a light blue that reflects the images of the Nishiki River, help a person in wheelchair get on and off besides introducing nature and the culture of place along railway-tracks by broadcasting in the car.

They will work in pair for 30 days from June 30 to August 28 on eight up and down lines in total.

Eight people applied including the last three experienced people this year. There was an announcement in the city office on July 1.

MORINO Chihiro (25), a house wife from the Iwakuni City and a part-timer MURAKAMI Kunie (61) as a pair attended it. Murakami, president of the Iwakuni Sign Language Circle, is looking forward to the debut, saying that she would be glad if she could contribute to society through sign language.
