VLADIVOSTOK. July 15. VOSTOK-MEDIA - A group of Primorsky Krai journalists came back from Japan after visiting the country of rising sun at the invitation of Tottori Prefect’s Office.
The delegation consisted of representatives of Zolotoy Rog Publishing Company, Dalnevostochniy Kapital (Far Eastern Capital) magazine, CITY Vladivostok magazine as well as Fishnews and Vostok-Media news agencies.
During the four-day visit of Russian journalists, Tottori Prefect’s Office authorities not only extended unstinted hospitality and sociability to the Russians, but also showed them all cultural and historical sightseeing spots of the Prefecture.
The Tottori Prefecture, bounded on the north by the Sea of Japan with the Chugoku Mountains running across the southern part of the area, gives tourists a chance to enjoy its beautiful beaches, healing hot springs in summer and skiing in winter. And numerous old quarters, crafts and centuries-old temples give you a chance to feel the breath of the history itself and catch fancy of the most demanding and curious tourists.
The visit of Russian wordsmiths coincided with launching of the ferry line Vladivostok –Tonghae (Korea) - Sakaiminato (Japan, Tottori Prefecture).
During the meeting with Primorsky Krai journalists, Shinji Hirai, Governor of Tottori Prefecture stated that “Up until now there was a wall between Primorsky Krai and the Prefecture, but since the sea lane appeared this wall dispelled. From now on our regions may not only shake hands on the deal, but go together so far as to developing joint business, tourism and state-of-the-art technologies.
“I intend to meet with Primirsky Krai Governor Sergey Darkin on the sidelines of The XIV Summit on International Exchange and Cooperation of Territory Administrations of North-East Asia Countries to be held in Mongolia in the last week of July. We will discuss prospects of further co-operation between Primorsky Krai and Tottori prefecture”, -said Shinji Hirai.
