On today's show, Ben and Burke discuss the GoTo Travel campaign that the government has introduced to encourage domestic travel and help boost local businesses due to the Corona virus pandemic. The Japanese government will provide subsidies of up to 50 percent on costs for hotels, transportations, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions within Japan.
The guys also talk about butchered English slogans, just like “GoTo Travel”, Burke taking advantage of the campaign during the long 4-day weekend at the end of July, Tokyo being excluded from the campaign, Iwate prefecture angry about outsiders visiting, Ben's favourite places to travel in Hokkaido, Burke’s experience of hiking Mt Fuji, and much much more. Enjoy the show!
