TOKYO--12 Oct--Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/InfoQuest

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is developing sightseeing routes from Tokyo to various tourist attractions in the Tohoku region to publicize diverse allures in these two regions and encourage individual foreign tourists visiting Tokyo to travel further to Tohoku.

In this connection, the Metropolitan Government has added new sightseeing routes from Tokyo to the Tohoku region recommended on its "TOHOKU x TOKYO" website.

The Metropolitan Government will invite journalists with overseas media outlets and influential popular bloggers specializing in travel to journey on these routes and write from the viewpoint of foreigners about what they see en route as well as at tourist attractions they visit during their trip.

Recommended routes:
PROSPERITY, STILLNESS & MOTION

This route primarily introduces the Shibuya Scramble pedestrian crosswalk, which is symbolic of the dynamism of Tokyo, and the Hiraizumi World Heritage Site that was built centuries ago to pray for peace and conveys the glory of the past to the present.
