Iroduku: The World in Colors 色づく世界の明日から

Welcome to this week’s review of notable instances of public transit use and urban design, as well as discussion of place identity and culture, through anime currently broadcast or screening in Japan and simulcast internationally via the web. This review also documents seichijunrei (聖地巡礼 holy land pilgrimage) and butaitanbou (舞台探訪 scene hunting), which are pop culture tourism and place-based engagement induced by the use of real locations in show settings.

Media and General Interest

Nishi Nippon Shimbun published an article about the contents tourism strategy of Saga Prefecture, executed through the Saga Prize initiative, which facilitates collaboration with popular anime and games as triggers for travel interest, but focuses resources on events and goods sales in the local region only, rather than trying to draw interest through marketing campaigns in Tokyo and other metropolitan areas. It notes the transient nature of an anime-induced interest boom, as has been the case with Yūri!!! on Ice, and the importance of encouraging repeat visitors.
