Hey, just stumbled on an article about Naka town (50,000+ inhabitants) on Japan's West-Coast, a short 2 hours drive from Tokyo. According to the town's officials; "You can fly drones here in unlimited ways without worrying that they will hit buildings or people."
In reality, the town's council established a friendly drone map with given locations where you can fly your drone in full safety without needing any other authorisation. It is said that the town was loosing in attractiveness & inhabitants so this is most probably seen as a good marketing opportunity to regain visitors' favors & probably even some new absolute fans willing to live there 👌
Has anyone been to Japan or heard about this one? Or maybe you're from Japan, & could share more info about it? Here's the link of the article, the town's location & The Ultimate Guide about Japan Drone Rules which will come in handy if you intend to fly elsewhere while in the country of the rising sun 🌅
