The Tomakomai IR Promotion Council has released a three-minute video pitching the importance of building the “Hokkaido White IR” in their city.
The video argues that the construction of an IR will allow the world to experience and understand the charms of Hokkaido, and create new fans for the local region. It is described as the “Hokkaido Living Gateway.”
The footage used in the video includes a substantial component that was clearly filmed overseas in Western countries, but this is apparently meant to suggest the internationalization that the IR would bring to the region. (AGB Nippon)
