Gunma-chan’s Day Out!


A little while back the International Volunteer Committee I’m a member of, Jomo Jet, started a huge project. Normally we do community events like orphanage visits and craft events, but during the summer holidays we decided to take a little bit more time and make a promotional video for Gunma.

Loosely inspired by the Saitama Anime Tourism Campaign as well as Where The Hell Is Matt, we spent a few hot sweaty days trucking around the prefecture filming as many locations as we possibly could. One of our super talented local friends (Manny Marx from The Uchujins) made a track to go along with it, and our fabulous member Lindsay just finished editing it all together.

I’m so excited to see the finished product up and on YouTube! And with almost 500 views! (That may not seem like a lot to the YouTube savvy, but it’s not bad for our first time out of the gate!)

Hopefully we’ll get a chance to do more videos, now that we’ve got this one under our belt! What do you think of this one? And what we should film next?
