You probably have read about Japan Tourism Agency’s plan to give out 10,000 round trip tickets to lucky social media enthusiasts round the globe – was actually excited after my reads – this project aimed to regained back Japan’s glory via the social media following the fatal devastation – tsunami, radiation issues that happened months back.
I’m not certain as to accommodation and food is covered but what I’m sure about is that lucky blogger|social media user can have a free flight back and forth to Japan.
This under the condition that you have to document every inch of your travel to practically all social media outlet you’re affiliated unto– blog, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube .. etc..

It was said that Japan’s tourist visits has dropped by 50% soon after the devastation happened, though this is not the first an online promotion was done by a particular country to attract potential visitors – if you can remember Australia’s Best Job In The World competition? Ahhh, Ben Southall was one lucky guy to have lived in that paradise, Thailand also has successfully launched their medical tourism promo and this time it’s Japan.
I hope this proposal will be adopted and the proposed 10 million yen to fund this project will be in placed soon. This project is set to start come April 2012.
Yayks, this could be my chance to see the land of the rising sun, God willing, I claim <—- nyahahah, just one hopeful being here.
