The idea for this inspiring project came from an employee of a Travel Agency, called Magellan Resorts - The Real Japan in Kanazawa (Japan), while brainstorming how to bring Tourism back to Japan. After seeing the coverage about Japan from international media, we felt a big part of information was missing: although the eathquake, tsunami and nuclear issue are terrible disasters, Japan as a country was NOT entirely destroyed or irradiated. All other places outside the evacuation zone are totally safe. But the media never mentioned it or that life goes on normally in many parts of Japan. This had severe consequences for many businesses in the travel & tourism industry, so we decided to create this project to promote Japan amongst the world’s travellers and show that it still is a safe & wonderful country to visit.
