A Visit to the White House in Japan, after approximately three years since the last coverage.

Amidst the global spread of the novel coronavirus and hyperinflation caused by a historic yen depreciation, international travel for Japanese citizens remains challenging. Given that our website’s concept is to introduce the charm of Washington, D.C. to a wider Japanese audience, it is only fitting that we conduct on-site coverage and provide the latest information. However, considering the current situation where it is not easy for international travelers to visit Washington, D.C., we have explored alternatives to offer a way to experience the city in a more accessible manner. As a result, we have decided to conduct coverage within Japan, seeking opportunities to bring Washington, D.C. closer to our audience domestically.
