For those of you looking to travel on a serious budget, now's your chance!
The Japan Tourism Agency has announced that they'll be offering 10,000 free trips to foreigners next year "in an attempt to boost the tourism industry which has been hit by the ongoing nuclear disaster."
To be eligible for the free trip, travelers will submit online applications in which they'll detail the areas of Japan that they'd like to visit, and winners will be asked to write reports about their trips, to be published on the Internet.
An online report? SMALL price to pay for what sounds like an amazing, cost-effective life experience!
And for those of you who are concerned about the country's nuclear disaster, the government has said that "Japan is safe except for the immediate vicinity of the crippled plant, where work crews are still trying to bring the facility to a cold shutdown."
Will U go visit Japan under this program? Or are U concerned about lingering effects from the "nuclear disaster?"
