When the reigning queen of pop says jump, we say, “how high?”

While in Japan for a tour, Lady Gaga said, “I would like to use my position here today and all week long to run around Tokyo and enjoy the beautiful city, and kiss all the beautiful little monsters and scream at the top of my lungs that everyone should visit this beautiful place.” (From http://news.travel.aol.com)

We are all familiar with the devastation that occurred in Japan this past March. However, not everyone realizes that only a very small percentage of the country was directly affected. For the rest of the country, it is business as usual and everyone from pop superstar Lady Gaga to senior tourism officials are proclaiming as such.

Magnet Tours, the first and only tour operator in Japan focused on the LGBT market believes that gay and lesbian travelers can play a significant role in Japan’s post-disaster recovery. They are sharing this message alongside recent announcements from Japanese tourism officials and Lady Gaga’s current stay in Japan, where she will be performing tonight (Saturday, June 25, 2011) for the MTV Video Music Aid Japan.
