Tackey & Tsubasa’s Tsubasa Imai has been named the world’s first Spanish culture envoy, it was announced on June 14, reports Oricon.

It has been reported Imai took part in a special ceremony at the Cervantes Institute in Tokyo on Thursday.  The Johnny’s talent had been recognised for his keen interest and promotion of Spanish culture through learning the language, and using his concerts and other events as an opportunity to do flamenco performances.

“I feel very grateful to have been given this responsibility.  I hope I can become a bridge between Japan and Spain,” Imai said in Spanish.

The Spanish Culture Envoy title is given to an individual who cares about the culture of both countries, and works to promote Spanish language and culture in Japan, and was awarded by the Spanish Ambassador Miguel Ángel Navarro Portera.

Today, the Johnny’s talent was asked to send a message to his lady fans in Spanish.

“I would rather say those things to a lady when we’re alone, but…’Te quiero’, ‘I love you’ I guess,” he said.
