On September 3, 2023, Ms. Urawat Sukseangdow, Minister Counsellor, represented the Royal Thai Embassy in the Thai Day, organized by the Ibaraki Astro Planet Club in parallel with a baseball game between the Ibaraki Astro Planet team and the Kanagawa Future Dreams team at the Kasama City Stadium, Ibaraki Prefecture. The Ibaraki Astro Planet Club has recruited a Thai baseball player, Mr. Narupol Muangkasem, to play for its team for 6 months in the 2023 season.
The small-scaled event had three kitchen trucks selling Thai foods, a few Thai shops selling Thai food ingredients and drinks, and a booth by the Mettatham Thai Temple in Ibaraki Prefecture promoting Thai Buddhist culture.
At the opening ceremony, Ms. Urawat made a remark about Thai-Japanese relations in sports and expressed appreciation in having a Thai athlete to join a baseball club in Japan. There were also Thai boxing performances and surprises from Ibaraki Astro Planet's mascots, riding in tuk-tuks (a small Thai style 3-wheel car) running around the stadium.
