Overview of the video

Each trip has its own story. The video is composed of ten short movies combined 
into one storyline. The titles of the ten movies represent spring, summer, 
autumn, winter, togetherness, fun, group, learn, rest, and travel. The video 
conveys a message of 'Welcome to Ibaraki' with the hope that interested
