We were asked to produce a video and pamphlet in multiple languages to attract international job-seekers to Yamanashi Prefecture. As part of the project we visited the prefecture and interviewed foreign people already working in the area. Using these stories we created a video and pamphlet centered on their perspectives, highlighting what they found appealing and challenging about working in Japan. Our goal was to create practical and aspirational content that represented Yamanashi Prefecture's progressive stance.
English Content Creation
We produced a series of English language articles for the Kansai Tourism Bureau official homepage focusing on luxurious cultural experiences that are generally not open to the general public. A number of our writers visited Tokushima, Shiga, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama prefectures to write about recently developed tours and experiences from an international perspective.
Article and Video Content Creation
We were asked to produce a series of articles and videos for the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan website Countryside Stays Japan. We developed itineraries that would appeal to international travelers and sent out small teams to 8 prefectures. For this project we produced both English and Chinese (Traditional) content.
A client approached us looking for a bilingual website, but it quickly became clear that the potential readers of the Japanese and English versions would be very different. Accordingly we developed two parallel sites, similar in design and content, but tailored to each market. We also produced an introductory video, and ran Google advertising campaigns to drive traffic.
