Dissemination of Information Through “ARIGATO” Host Towns for Supporting Reconstruction

In preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games, an initiative designating local public entities that promote human, economical, and cultural exchanges with participating countries and regions as “host towns” began in July 2015 to contribute to the establishment of a sports-oriented nation, globalization, regional revitalization, tourism promotion, etc. In September 2017, host towns whichi residents interact with countries and regions that have been supporting the three affected prefectures were newly categorized as “ARIGATO” Host Towns for Supporting Reconstruction, and the initiative has continued to expand.

The Reconstruction Agency is promoting the registration of host towns in disaster-affected areas, including “ARIGATO” Host Towns for Supporting Reconstruction, and is working to spread awareness in cooperation with related ministries and agencies.
