Rainbow Ski Weekend in Urabandai

2024.3.2 - 3.3


Out Asia Travel has been holding the "RAINBOW SKI WEEKEND" in Urabandai, Fukushima since 2015. The reason for the event was that the number of skiers in Fukushima was drastically decreasing due to harmful rumors after the earthquake. Genta, who was working in the sales promotion department at Grandeco Snow Resort at the time, wished to attract LGBTQ guests and became the first LGBTQ person in Tohoku to join an international LGBTQ travel association.

Out Asia Travel, sympathizing with Genta's efforts, decided to sponsor an LGBTQ ski tour as a way to help Tohoku's recovery.
