(MVA) — TV Aichi/TV Tokyo Network aired a special program featuring the Marianas on March 7, targeting over 40 million households across the country and bringing the destination approximately $900,000 in media exposure.

TV Aichi filmed in Saipan on Feb. 16-21, 2020, and plans to highlight beautiful scenic points, popular activities, events, sites and food in the program titled “The Best Weekend Resort with Direct Flight: Let’s See All the Superb Views in Saipan Within 48 Hours!”

The familiarization tour was organized by the Marianas Visitors Authority.

“Five days is a day or two longer than the usual familiarization or fam tour, so we’re happy to see TXN’s interest in Saipan and to have their support in promoting the destination across Japan,” said MVA Managing Director Priscilla M. Iakopo.

“Visitor arrivals from Japan have remained relatively consistent since the launch of direct flights by Skymark Airlines in November, and we aim to continue and grow this number through more fam tours and other marketing and promotions.”

Activities covered by the film crew included star gazing, sky diving, a self-driving tour, UTV tour, Garapan Street Market, Sabalu Market, Managaha tour, and spa and relaxation at Shirodhara and Natural Scrub.
