Yokohama produces series of videos to attract foreign tourists

posted on April 3, 2016

The Yokohama Convention and Visitors Bureau (YCVB), which is very active in boosting the number of foreign tourists to their city, has recently produced a set of four videos to draw attention to the city as a major tourist destination and heighten awareness about its attractions.

The new fast-paced and topical videos are designed to encourage foreigners to visit Yokohama. American Matthew Gammon, a resident of Yokohama and Art Director of the multimedia company, Bright Wave Media, produced the videos for the city.

The videos will be posted on YouTube and the YCVB's website for use as a promotional tool at tourism fairs and international conferences abroad.

"Yokohama stands out as a world-class city that is full of vibrant communities, history, and sights. I think these videos will provide potential visitors with a small slice of what makes Yokohama an enjoyable and beautiful city, and hope they will encourage a fresh new generation of people to visit our city," said Gammon.

The videos showcase Yokohama's fascinations in the areas of sightseeing, music, food, and art & culture.
