Is Japan Cool?

Is Japan Cool? That's a good question. Why don't you take a look at ANA's "Is Japan Cool?" video, a menu of over 30 brief video-essays, complete with easy to understand explanations? It's a great introduction to a variety of interesting and informative topics about Japan, including fashion, food, health, sightseeing etc. Visitors to the site may vote whether they think each video is "cool" or "not so cool". You can also access the YouTube video and ANA Facebook links from the site, as well.

ANA is introducing the "Cool Japan" YouTube campaign and video. Visitors to the website can participate in a lottery to win one pair of free round-trip airline tickets to Japan, courtesy of ANA. The campaign period runs from February 17th, 2012 to March 31st, 2012, 11:59pm Japan time. Terms of entry are listed on the entry form.

We're sure that you'll be intrigued by many of the videos that you watch, and will want to learn more about the country that produced them! Many things, such as sake and karaoke, have already become household words outside of Japan, but there is a whole other world waiting for you! Come visit the site and see for yourself, and then tell us what's "cool" or not! And if you're lucky, you'll win a free trip to Japan!
