10,000 People To Be Given Free Trips To Japan


10,000 People To Be Given Free Trips To Japan

In an effort to boost tourism to Japan following a 50 percent decline in visitors since the March 11 earthquake and Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster, the Japan Tourism Agency announced it will be offering 10,000 free trips to the country beginning next April. It appears that this offer covers flights only, and visitors will be required to “write a report” about their trip so it could be published online to help lure future visitors.

Last time I wrote a report like this, it was on my first day back to school in third grade, and I’m not sure how they’re going to enforce this given the report is due after you’ve already taken advantage of their offer, but here’s to promoting an amazing country and thinking outside the box in promoting travel.

No further details are available as of yet, but try following Visit Japan’s Twitter feed for updates.
