Saitama Tourism PR Anime Special (Video)

Saitama Prefecture’s new tourism campaign has just started. Four separate parts of the original net anime (ONA) entitled “The Four Seasons” have been released online on the official Ckip City YouTube Channel. The videos represent different tourist destinations within the limits of the prefecture in all four seasons. See the short videos below.

Autumn Adventures of Higan the Brave and Princess Licori

Winter Sweet Home

These lovely animation shorts are aimed at everyone – young, old, nerdy, outgoing and so on. I have to admit that the Autumn one is probably the one I liked the most, but there is no doubt that these ONA episodes are definitely lovely! I wish more countries did what Saitama Prefecture is doing – embracing their culture, without aiming to copy anyone else, and sharing its own beauty through means of modern technology and franchises.

OK, I admit – the shorts are well made and catchy. The “educational” part, however, is as dull as usual.
