Japan's tourism industry has been struggling since March 11, although many cities in the country have no damage and are functioning normally. The project aims to show the world that Japan remains a safe destination while helping to promote international tourism in support of its weakened economy.
"After seeing the coverage about Japan in the media, we felt some important information was missing: although it encountered a terrible disaster which claimed thousands of lives, Japan as a country was NOT entirely destroyed. We decided to create this project to show that Japan still is a safe & wonderful country to visit and promote it amongst the world's travelers.", says Hiroshi Kuchiki, a founder of The Real Japan – Magellan Resorts & Trust.
