During such an unprecedented time when international leisure travel has come become almost negligible, Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) is conducting a series of Facebook Live events in an attempt to give the grounded travel enthusiasts a virtual travel experience.
In order to maintain this desire to visit Japan, JNTO introduces ‘Fun From Home’, an online video webcast and using this concept, targets a total of more than 3 million SNS followers from 6 overseas offices and thus allowing them to feel ‘Japan Now’ in the comfort of their home.

Through the comfort of their home, armchair travellers can now get an opportunity to hike the much famous Mount Fuji or even experience a much-recommended tea ceremony. Adventure seekers can look out for the serene coastal line of Okinawa and shutterbugs can soothe their eyes through the panoramic views of the autumn festival.
