World Cosplay Summit: Mayor of Nagoya Welcomes Competitors Dressed as Luffy from One Piece

Mayor of Nagoya City, Takashi Kawamura, greeted the competitors of this year’s 10th World Cosplay Summit as Luffy from One Piece. Accompanied by Governor Hideaki Ohmura, Kawamura met with competitors from Finland and Mexico just three days before  the championship begins.

Over 40 cosplayers from 20 countries and regions are competing this year. The UK will be represented by Laura Sindall and Alexandra Rutter, who were selected as representatives at the London Hyper Japan event earlier this year.
