[ Event ] 2018 Japan Anime Tourism 88-Stop Pilgrimage Announced!

Japan’s 88-stop anime pilgrimage sites, chosen by fans all over the world, was announced.
This project, which involves “anime pilgrimage sites” previously featured on this show, was planned by the public-private partnership, “Anime Tourism Association” that promotes tourism and regional revitalization.
An anime pilgrimage site is the name given to regions and places that’re models for anime and manga.
The association did a poll of anime fans around the world who cast their votes over the web, starting on July 2016 for one year.
In total, they received 50,000 votes from which the 88 anime pilgrimage sites were chosen.
