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.

After appreciating "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," a masterpiece of one of 
the most famous ukiyo-e painters, Hokusai Katsushika, at the Sumida Hokusai 
Museum which possesses and exhibits his works, head to Sakurajima, an active
