Japan on the cheap
Six months have passed since the earthquakes that did so much damage in Japan, and the Japanese tourism agency is thinking of ways to get the word out that the country is a safe place to visit. One idea: give away 10,000 roundtrip plane tickets to people who talk up Japan on social media outlets. A tweet for a ticket, perhaps. Room and board not included, and you'll have to document the trip through your preferred social outlet, but still.
