North Korea has been dominating the news for the Asia-Pacific region these days, especially with the threat of nuclear war. With leader Kim Jong Un’s latest round of nuclear tests, it’s safe to say that everyone is jittery. More so in Japan, which North Korea has been threatening to bomb for decades. However, even with the growing animosity between Japan and the Hermit Kingdom, that doesn’t stop the rogue state from inviting Japanese tourists.
JS TOURS specialises in North Korean tourism, and it’s been trying to entice Japanese people to visit the country. It even launched its own twitter page, @toursJs, which promises that the North has “No terrorism, no thieving, no earthquakes”. And they’ve been really trying, and are even wooing some in the anime community. You see, they have this animated show called “The Boy General”, which they describe as North Korea’s Dragon Ball. They even show voice actors working over at the 4.26 Animation Studio in North Korea.
