The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), the seven prefectures of the Kyushu (Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Oita, Miyazaki, and Kagoshima), the Kyushu Tourism Promotion Organization, and air and railway operators have jointly established the “Tokyo and Kyushu Council to Attract More Foreign Travelers”, so that foreign independent travelers visiting Tokyo can easily visit the Kyushu. Promotional activities highlighting the features of both Tokyo and the Kyushu 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 Kyushu.
