New Website Introduces Enjoyable Tour Route from Tokyo to Kumamoto Prefecture, Contrasting Both Regions
TOKYO, Sept. 14, 2017 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ --

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has released recommended routes via the 
KYUSHU x TOKYO website to encourage travelers to venture beyond Tokyo to the 
Kyushu region and take advantage of both areas' wide ranges of features. These 
two fascinating regions are particularly well-known throughout Japan for their 
historically significant sites as well as their more contemporary cultural 
attractions.

The website suggests easy trips from Tokyo, and has also invited influencers 
from abroad such as media representatives and famous travel bloggers to cover 
these routes. Their travel reports, sharing their experiences from a 
non-Japanese viewpoint, are coming soon.
