Japanese mayor promotes tourism in visit to Tainan

Taipei--The visiting mayor of the Japanese city of Nikko called on Tainan Mayor Lai Ching-te in southern Taiwan Monday to solicit more visits to his city by Taiwanese tourists.

Fumio Saito expressed appreciation to the people of Taiwan for their generous donations in the wake of the March 11 earthquake and the subsequent tsunami that battered northeastern Japan, and at the same time invited them to visit his city.

He said that Nikko, located 140 km north of Tokyo and famous for its historic sites and hot springs, is not an earthquake-affected area, but it has been affected by the quake nonetheless due to the widespread reports about the disaster and the nuclear crisis that followed.

"The living environment, air, water and food of the city are well within safety limits," he said.

He also said that Taiwanese passport holders will each receive a coupon worth 1,000 Japanese yen (US$12.27) that can be redeemed in all shops in the city between May 10 and Aug. 31.

Lai for his part promised that a group will be organized to visit the city at the end of the month.
