    where are my free tickets

    Back in October, a Japanese government plan to award 10,000 free plane tickets to foreign tourists was widely reported in the Western media. As I wrote at the time, it had yet not been approved by the government and it was by no means certain that the plan would go forward.

    A few days ago, the JTO put an official announcement on its website: the plan will receive no funding, so it’s dead.

    The project titled Fly to Japan! (to offer flight tickets to 10,000 foreigners with high potential to communicate Japan’s attractions), which had been covered in a number of media in autumn this year, was not approved as a governmental draft budget of FY 2012.

    We express our hearty gratitude to a multitude of people for offering inquiries and messages to support Japan after its coverage.

    As the recovery from the earthquake is an ongoing urgent task, Japan has been vigorously working towards its restoration with the support from the world. Almost all of Japan has been back to normal and ready to welcome visitors. We are sincerely looking forward to having you to see Japan with your own eyes.
