The connection between us
Kizuna is credited with rebuilding Japan in the aftermath of the devastating 2011 tsunami and earthquake. It means the bond between people, and it was the spirit of human connection that helped communities get back on their feet.
Only 2% of Japan visitors travel to Tohoku, the region affected by the disaster. But many years on from the tragedy, although still struggling economically, the people are ready for English-speaking visitors so you're sure of a genuinely warm welcome. It's an area rich in samurai history, hot spring baths, rugged mountainous scenery and much, much more. Spending time and money in Tohoku is not only using tourism for good, it's guaranteed to give you that warm kizuna feeling.
