The city of Kyoto signed a contract to pay ¥1 million to a comedy duo to promote the city on Twitter, local officials revealed Monday, but the city is coming under fire after the pair posted messages without marking them as being promotional.

The two brothers, who form the duo Miki, made several posts in October 2018, but the tweets did not mention the relationship between the city and their agency, Yoshimoto Kogyo Co.
