In July 2018, many regions of Japan were severely damaged by extensive flooding.
Thanks to generous support from numerous quarters, each of these regions is gradually returning to its previous, unharmed state.
Tourist numbers are increasing once again, and as people and regions come together, the circle of good cheer and smiles is widening.
The HASHIWATASHI PROJECT is a project to showcase the attractions of these regions to people throughout Japan and around the world, bringing sightseers and the people of these communities together in laughter and smiles.
