Cultural richness, beautiful environment, advanced technology, excellent public transportation system, large metropolitan cities and a vibrant economic society, are all in Japan and other cities in South Korea, and China. People truly experience living in diversified and all-in-one environment which make everyday life interesting and convenient. Just thinking about visiting a section of Tokyo, tourists will surprise to see various interesting places such as high-rise buildings, modern shopping centers and commercial districts, large public parks, museums, shrines and Buddhist temples, and sophisticated and busy train lines and metros throughout the city. These unique achievements in Japan is contributed by the hard works of Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, who establish and implement master plans for city planning and infrastructure development in Japan. The mission of this Ministry is to create a strong foundation through policies designed to support comfortable communities, vibrant economic society, everyday security, a beautiful environment, and regional diversity.
