Revolution midfielder Daigo Kobayashi meets members of Boston's Japanese community

On Sunday, April 13, recent Revs addition Daigo Kobayashi had the chance to meet members of the local Japanese community at a special luncheon. Hosted by the Japanese Association of Greater Boston, the event was held at Itadaki on Newbury Street.

Daigo met Akira Muto – the Consul General of Japan in Boston – who delivered a welcome speech to kick things off. The midfielder then mingled with party-goers and posed with fans for photos throughout the afternoon, including the restaurant’s Executive Chef Kaoru Fujishiro.

Another member of the Revs family also joined the festivities in Revolution Under-18 player Zach Herivaux, who is half Japanese and fluent in the language. View the photos below, or click here to view on flickr (best for mobile users).
