Japan Study Tour

2008 – Nagano

Connecting the Urban and the Rural

Twelve representatives from local government related organisations in the UK spent almost two weeks in November 2008 touring Tokyo and Nagano for the 2008 Japan Study Tour. Some of the many activities and visits included a tour of Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s Waste Management Centre, and studies into sustainability and ‘green tourism’ in rural communities around Nagano prefecture.
