KUALA LUMPUR: The Chiba Prefectural Government will provide virtual tours arranged by ‘City Cast Chiba’, an organisation of ‘city volunteers’ recruited by the local government, in August and September.
According to a statement, Chiba Prefecture will host eight sporting events such as fencing, surfing and goalball at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The virtual tours are designed to help people, who had planned to enjoy local tours or excursions in areas around the Olympics and Paralympics venues, to enjoy alternative experiences.
Programmes in English, Chinese and Spanish will be posted on the Chiba Prefectural Government’s website from mid-July.
Those wishing to take part in the programmes are required to apply through the website after confirming the programmes of their choice. Participants will be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis.
Details of tours and their themes will be posted on the website. Time is Japan time and each tour is limited to 15 participants.
