GANBAROU TOHOKU: Gaijin drifters make the newspaper

December 6, 2015 3:17 pm Published by

One of the least enviable jobs in Japan right now has to be a tourism officer for Fukushima Prefecture. The earthquake, tsunami and resulting nuclear disaster of a few years ago tainted the name of the entire region, even though only coastal areas were affected.

So, the tourism council of Fukushima is naturally looking to promote tourist spots that only exist within the prefecture. One of those is Ebisu Circuit, and the three annual Drift Matsuri events. Check out this video they made of the Autumn Matsuri.

The same event also made the Asahi Shimbun, which is a national newspaper.
