A new magazine has been introduced in Japan called Dark Tourism, which focuses on less conventional sites for visitors to Japan.

According to Inside Japan Tours:

Dark tourism refers to visitors who would prefer to see go and see less conventional sites and therefore gain a different insight into Japan's history.

A new magazine entitled Dark Tourism has been published in Japan to shed light on such places and highlight the value of visiting them.
