Concept of the Association

 We  stand together with those in the anime industry,
 hoping for growth in the anime industry as well as in the regions of Japan,
 contributing to making Japan and its regions a place where people around the world would wish to visit.

Mission of the Association

Our mission is to select and formalize the “Anime Pilgrimage Sites”. Moreover, we aim to establish an expansive route connected by “Anime Pilgrimage Sites” through a nation-wide public and private partnership structure.

We wish to connect “Anime Pilgrimage Sites” (Local Regions), corporations, and content holders, allowing them to take advantage of the subject of the “Anime Pilgrimage Site” to provide goods and services and to create a welcoming environment for tourists, encouraging new economic growth.

Through a number of methods, we aim to spread information about the “Anime Pilgrimage Sites” to supporters of Cool Japan both in Japan and abroad, connecting tourists and pilgrimage sites to create new customers.
