- Experiencing Japan through Virtual Tours -

The Chiba Prefectural Government will provide virtual tours arranged by "City Cast Chiba," an organization of "city volunteers" recruited by the local government, in August and September.
Chiba Prefecture will host eight sporting events such as fencing, surfing and goalball at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The virtual tours are designed to help people, who had planned to enjoy local tours or excursions in areas around the Olympics and Paralympics venues, to enjoy alternative experiences.
Programs in English, Chinese and Spanish will be posted on the Chiba Prefectural Government's website from mid-July. Those wishing to take part in the programs are required to apply through the website after confirming the programs of their choice.
*Participants will be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis.
