Ebino City in Miyazaki Prefecture releases promotional videos

TOKYO —

Ebino City, located in Miyazaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, has released two online videos aimed at improving awareness of the city worldwide. The two videos are titled “The Charms of Ebino” and “Moving and Settling in Ebino.”

Ebino is a small city with approximately 20,000 residents, and yet it boasts the largest concentration of hot springs in the prefecture and is renowned for producing some of the finest rice and beef in Japan, as well as other natural
resources offered by its abundant nature.

The videos not only introduce the attractive aspects of Ebino but also depict life in the city as a part of the Ebino Life Style (ELS) exercise program, suggesting that simply living in Ebino will help with getting fit and healthy.
Moreover, the videos feature real residents of Ebino, who wholeheartedly attest to the effectiveness of the exercise program and the appeal of the city.

While the notion that simply living in a city serves as exercise is ridiculous at first, the earnest testimonials of local residents both lend credibility to the claims and comical value to the videos.

    It's been many years since I last visited Ebino-shi. Nice that they are trying to promote the city, but the videos are so corny. Still, if it gets them attention ...
