Hiroshi Suzuki, the Japanese ambassador to India, arrived in India last year and has since become a social media sensation for his love of Indian food. On multiple occasions, videos of the 61-year-old ambassador enjoying Indian delicacies have gone viral, showcasing his genuine appreciation for the country’s diverse and flavorful cuisine.
Recently, the Japanese Ambassador paid a visit to one of New Delhi’s renowned destinations, Sarojini Nagar. This bustling area is famous for its roadside flea markets and street foods.
Mr Suzuki visited the place with his wife Eiko Suzuki and Mayo, a Hindi-speaking Japanese YouTuber who is a popular content creator on social media.
Mr Suzuki shared the video of the visit on microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter) with a caption that reads, “Wonderful, desi experience with Hindi-speaking Japanese YouTuber Mayo san! Aloo tikki dijiye.”

The video has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from social media users, who have praised Suzuki for his genuine interest in Indian culture and his willingness to connect with people from all walks of life.
