I have read a few articles about the Japan government's interesting new plan of giving free tickets to Japan. All 10,000 of them. Now that may sound like dream come true for the likes of me, but the sad part about that is, they most likely hand out those tickets for famous people. Famous writers, bloggers, you name it.
But why only them? Well, the main focus of that campaign is to increase tourism in Japan, so they most likely expects that the free ticket receivers write about the country and how awesome it is. So they just pick up the people who has the most following. It's rather sad that you need to be famous to get something like that. But such is life. I will apply for the ticket of course, but not gonna hold my breath over it... My luck in competitions is terribly poor..
But the premise of that handout is excellent. The current view of Japan may be slightly wrong at the moment, and I'm sure this helps to remedy the situation.
And I have a new banner. That picture (made by Lexor) fits perfectly to this blog, thanks a million!
My travel account has also taken a little boost, courtesy of Lexor. Thank you, Lexor :)
The current balance is 160/5000.
