BBC fast:track in Tokyo

While checking out BBC World News recently I saw a very interesting episode of their travel program called Fast Track. I’ve seen Fast Track at random times before as it covers news and recent developments in travel industry but when I heard Tokyo, anime and saw a dancing storm trooper on screen that episode reached an all new interest level.


The short program showcases Japanese technology, research and culture and the Japan Tourist Board’s effort to attract 10 million visitors a year by 2010 to Japan. Click here to watch the 10 minute long video.

  1. i like BBC Fast Track. It’s usually interesting. Actually, I love anything BBC. They’re the best for great coverage of international news.

  2. First thing I thought when I saw that Storm Trooper…

    Danny Choo

    He was this guy that dressed up as a Storm Trooper and walked around in Tokyo

    He has a blog too btw, and the traffic increased substantially after he posted pics and stuff during his stint in Tokyo.

  3. That is an interesting statement about tourism. Do you know whether that is doable? I am actually wondering how many tourists they pull in bi-yearly.
