Japan has announced that it plans to invite 10,000 people to visit Japan on them. Well not completely, you would need to cover food, lodging, etc. The cost of the plane tickets would be covered. The catch is, you will need to publicize about your visit.
Me, I would love to go. I think a trip like this would allow me to expand my knowledge and meet people. I would not mind sharpening my skills in photo journalism as well as blogging to share my experiences. The Japan Tourism board hopes to breath new life into tourism after the Tsunami and Nuclear incidents.
Danny has also posted about this offer and included some other useful information should you decide you wish to apply for those tickets.
