The city of Kushima in Miyazaki decided to give Norfumi Nishimura a Citizen's Honor Award today. A presentation ceremony will take place on the 19th.
Said Nishimura, "This is a great honor. I'm glad that we somehow managed to meet the expectations of the fans living in my home town by working hard to win. I'll do my best not to disappoint next year and continue to put forth the effort to make sure we win. I hope that we can continue to rely on everyone's support."
