Schoolchildren promoted their hometown, Aizu which is in Fukushima prefecture, on the streets in downtown Tokyo using their handmade booklets. They went to Tokyo on a school excursion, called 修学旅行. The reason they did such an activity during the trip is because Aizu is facing economical difficulty due to the Fukushima Plant. Tourists hardly go there anymore, even though Aizu is about 100km (62 miles) far from the Plant.
