Who Wants Free Airfare to Japan?
If you can write a review of a trip and you have a passport, you can apply for one of 10,000 free plane tickets to Japan that should become available by April 2012. (And even if you don't have a passport now, you'll have time to get one.)
This offer almost seems too good to be true, and it is since it has not yet been approved
by Japanese lawmakers.
But, if the Japanese National Tourist Organization has their way, the $14.3 million
in expenditures for the plane tickets will be passed - mainly to improve the current state of tourism after the March nuclear accident. In order to qualify, applicants must agree to write about their experience, which will equate to "free" advertising for Japan which has suffered a blow in their tourism industry.
Since this has not yet been passed, no details have been posted on the site yet but - if I were you (or me) - I'd keep an eye out on the JNTO site
