Free flights to Japan
October 11th, 2011 by elisa

 

Are you a budding travel writer but have no cash to go across the world? Well, accoding to the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper, the Japanese Tourism Agency plans to give away 10,000 free airfares to visit areas of Japan! All they ask in return is that you write a report about your trip which will be published online.

The move is to promote overseas tourists to visit the country in an attempt to help boost the tourism industry in the aftermath of the nuclear disaster following the tsunami in March.

Would-be travellers will have to submit online applications detailing the areas which they would like to visit. The agency hopes that the successful applicants will write back positive reports about the country, which will help to ease worries about visiting the country after recent events.

The programme, which will require travellers to cover other costs such as accommodation, is expected to start from next April, subject to government budgetary approval.
