#MyOwnPersonalJapan SNS posting campaign for foreign nationals living in Japan


To all foreign nationals living in Japan. Don’t you feel frustrated that you can’t just freely go on a trip? Some of you may be thinking “I can’t meet my families back home...” or “My friends planned to come and meet me in Japan but now it’s cancelled...” To feed that longing for travel, and to reawaken that feeling of excitement that your families and friends had, why don’t you share your past travel experiences and places you want your friends to visit with us?
