Sightseeing routes for foreign independent travelers starting from Tokyo
Fam trips for overseas media and influencers jointly held by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Hokuriku region


The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), the four prefectures of the Hokuriku region (Niigata, Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui), and air and railway operators have jointly established the “Tokyo and Hokuriku Region Council to Attract More Foreign Travelers”, so that foreign independent travelers visiting Tokyo can easily visit the Hokuriku region. Promotional activities highlighting the features of both Tokyo and the Hokuriku region are underway.
To facilitate the campaign, fam trips are being held again this year for overseas media and others on sightseeing routes linking Tokyo and sites in the Hokuriku region.
