TOKYO, September 21 (Itar-Tass) — Two leading tour operators of the Republic of Altai – Manzherok and Vysotnik – will organize free-of-charge three-week rehabilitation in the republic in 2013 for ten children from quake and tsunami-affected Japanese regions, Vladimir Ilyushenko, a member of the Russian delegation at the International Tourism Fair JATA-2012 told Itar-Tass. The fair opened in Tokyo on Friday.
"It is an initiative of the republic's business that feels its responsibility, the official said.
Together with Japanese children, two adults will go to Altai to accompany them. The local tour operators will pay for the expenditures. "We believe it will contribute to the consolidation of friendly ties between Russia and Japan, and serve for the development of bilateral economic relations”, Ilyushenko added.
Hit by the disaster on March 11, 2011, Japan suffered a severe psychological shock along with material losses. It affected first of all the young generation.
