It has become a tourist destination of interest in SDGs tourism, being designated as a model district for fiscal 2021 under the Japan Sustainable Tourism Strategy for Sustainable Development (JSTS-D).

Work introduction

We are preparing right now.




We will hold a film festival from Yoron Island, which is rich in culture, history, and nature, to share Japanese tourism images with the world.
We ask for your support for the planning and operation of the festival, which was decided on short notice, and for measures against infectious diseases.

Crowdfunding is underway!

We want to make the Japan International Tourism Video Festival Yoron a success after the Aomori festival was canceled!
