Apr 2nd 2010

Gardena, CA (April 2, 2010) - Pop Japan Travel, the premier provider of pop culture-themed tours of Japan, is pleased to announce their latest tour for yaoi fans: the 2010 Fujoshi Paradise Tour.

Designed with the sizeable international fan base for yaoi in mind, the Fujoshi Paradise Tour isn't just another tour of Tokyo. The tour is a full week of activities and experiences just for the yaoi fan, such as an exclusive meal at a butler cafe, and is hosted by tour guides from the yaoi publishing industry and yaoi fandom alike. Pop Japan Travel has also announced that famed manga creator Makoto Tateno, the creator of yaoi series like Hero Heel, Yellow and Blue Sheep Reverie will also be meeting with tour participants for a private Q&A session and a night out on the town.

"We are thrilled to have Tateno-sensei on the tour," says Gigi Guiting, Pop Japan Travel Director of Operations. "She loves meeting her fans from overseas, so I am certain that the meeting will be unforgettable!" Guiting also mentioned that the tour has a number of extensions available for fans that want to check out traditionally famous Japanese sights, such as Mount Fuji and Kyoto.

To promote the tour, Pop Japan Travel has released the third in their series of commercials written and produced by the tour guides working for the company. The video parodies Japanese "radio dramas" that base themselves on manga, and features the work of tour guest Tateno. Fans can check out the video attached to this press release or on YouTube via the Pop Japan Travel Channel. (http://www.youtube.com/user/PopJapanTravel)
