The government on Friday named Japan’s ambassador to South Korea, Koji Tomita, as its new envoy to the United States, effective the same day, ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next month.

Tomita, 63, is known to have ties with people close to Biden. He succeeds Shinsuke Sugiyama, who assumed the post in January 2018.
