Due to recent earthquake disaster in 3/11, tourisms have dropped significantly. Many vacationers have either cancelled their itineraries or booked their vacation to travel elsewhere. Let me be the first and certainly not the last to say, Japan is still and always will be a safe country to visit or live. To prove my statement correct, Japan government is making plans to give away 10,000 free airline tickets to anyone who 'qualifies.' That's right, FREE. What is the catch? Unfortunately, there are a few, but for a price of a round-trip ticket, minus other expensive, the catch is fairly small.
