Why does OHK do this campaign?

Okayama Broadcasting Co.,Ltd. (Or "OHK" as it's better known) is a television station broadcasting to the Okayama and Kagawa prefectures (Setouchi Sea is between these two prefectures) and is a member of the Fuji-television Network.

For decades, Setouchi suffered from a number of problems including a population and industrial decline. Setouchi Triennale, a prominent contemporary art festival, was founded in 2010, which helped in part to rejuvenate and stimulate the Setouchi area back into prosperity.
Over the years, the festival has helped bring in more domestic and foreign tourists, jobs and businesses. It has become so popular that it has become a mainstay and major attraction of Setouchi. The seven prefectures surrounding Setouchi also enjoyed an increase in tourism and helped form the Setouchi Brand Suishin Rengo in 2013 followed by the establishment of the Setouchi DMO (an organization to help revitalize Setouchi area) in 2016.

Located in the center of Setouchi, one of OHK's many missions is to stimulate and revitalize the local community.
As a media outlet, we think it is very important to deliver information about the local area nationally and internationally.
