Welcome to the dark side of Japan!

The first issue of a travel magazine dedicated to sites associated with negative legacies like war and natural disasters hit bookstores this summer.

While most tourist sites in Japan tend to focus on the bright and admirable aspects of their history or circumstances, the new travel magazine, Dark Tourism Japan, published by Million Publishing, encourages readers to enrich themselves through visits to places with dark pasts.

Ide, who took part in editing of this magazine, told “ The travel of the memory of the sorrow - dark tourism helps to find out the idea of deep root in Japan”

Why don’t you experience ‘Dark tourism’ the next time you visit Japan?
