[PRESSWIRE] Fukushima, Japan - 22.12.2015 -- Under its slogan, "Future From Fukushima," the governmental departments of Fukushima Prefecture have been primarily using Facebook as their information-sharing platform, providing a forum for anyone in or outside the prefecture to participate and interact.

Here, all government departments collaborate to build a sense of unity in conveying the 'Wonder' and 'Now' of Fukushima to all, throughout the world.

On December 21 (Mon), the highly popular Japanese video series, "Dancing in the Four Seasons of Fukushima," was launched in the three language versions, making it available to enjoy in English, Chinese (traditional and simplified characters), and Korean.

The "Dancing in the Four Seasons of Fukushima" series are videos that showcase both the dance performances of performers connected to the area, set to various musical compositions, and the breathtaking beauty of Fukushima's four seasons, which serves as a backdrop to the performances. Released videos include the Summer Edition, "'Iwaki in Summer', a dance performed by Junior High School student street dancing team FORCE ELEMENTS at Aquamarine Fukushima," which was also selected in the 2015 Yahoo Video Topics Awards as one of the stand-out local PR videos (announced on December 4); Spring Edition, "'Fukushima in Spring', a dance performed at Hanami-yama to the song 'Kami no Manimani'"; and Autumn Edition, "'Urabandai in Autumn', a dance performed by ballerinas amidst autumn colors."
