Japan to Host Sector 1 Regional Tracking Center


We are pleased to announce that for the first time ever Japan will host the Regional Tracking Center this Christmas for Sector 1.

Otaru is a coastal port city on the northern most island of Japan, known as Hokkaido. The city has a moderate population of about 120,000 people and is located 25 miles from Sapporo, Japan, home of the 1972 Winter Olympic Games. Otaru is known for it’s warm humid summers and it’s very snowy winters.

“I’m quite excited to get to Japan, to learn a little of the language and to meet the many warm and inviting people there,” said Elf Randi Hume, Elf Supervisor for Sector 1. “We know we’ll have the best of modern amenities in the location selected for us within Otaru and that we will be safe while we work to help track Santa for Santa”.

North Pole Flight Command signed contracts with city officials there for a 125,000 square foot facility that boasts of high speed fiber Internet service. Several Japanese manufacturers of electronics, furniture, food and beverage as well as International hotel chains have generously offered their services in support of crews that will soon be headed to Japan to bring the new Regional Tracking Center online.

It is estimated to be operational before July 24th.

Further announcements of new Regional Tracking Centers in other sectors are expected in the coming days.

    Thank you, Elf Roger! Awesome! Incredible! I’m so surprised to hear that! I submitted a different place in Hokkaido but thought they would choose another location in the Southern Hemisphere! I’ve never been to Otaru yet, but it’s a nice place! Thank you so much for selecting the regional center in my country!! I’d love to help with whatever I can! XD
