Videos and Brochures Conveying the Appeal of Musashino City—“Musashino: A Travel Guide,” etc.

Interest in Japan is growing throughout the world due to the upcoming Rugby World Cup Japan 2019 and Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympic Games. In conjunction with these events, the Musashino city created a video and brochure conveying the appeal of the city and its Kichijoji neighborhood. The area features a wide range of cultures such as food, music, nature and anime which are interesting and enjoyable for international visitors.

The appeal of Musashino city is featured in the video “Musashino: A Travel Guide.” In the video, prominent residents introduce the appeal of Musashino city, which is loved by people of all nationalities and ages. Also, the video “10 Unique Things to do in Kichijoji” uses blog articles to help introduce can’t-miss experiences when visiting the appealing neighborhood of Kichijoji.

This project started in 2017 and took about two years to complete. As part of the project, students of Seikei University and Asia University interviewed foreign businesspeople living in Japan and collected attractive pictures.

They are also available through special articles, Facebook, etc., of Gaijin-pot (gaijinpot.com), a website that is frequently viewed by foreign residents and international visitors to Japan.
