in English, Korean, or Traditional Chinese.

No, the site is written in simplified Chinese. And some wordings are not quite fluent... Anime smile + sweatdrop

well with lines such as "where are anime are set" and "we'll introduce three best well-known here" it's pretty obvious the the "English" isn't very grammatically correct either.

Although there is nothing new about a local government trying to cash in tourist money, I'm surprised that Saitama is doing this as well. I heard Sendai is doing similar thing by accommodating animation production location scout. For anyone interested in visiting Anime sites outside of Tokyo, there is guide book called, "Pilgrimage to Sacred sites: Touring around 12 Anime/Manga titles (聖地巡礼 アニメ・マンガ12ヶ所めぐり).
