Song Hye-kyo distributed guidebooks to Tokyo to introduce Korean historical sites located in Tokyo, on Monday.

“Song and I offered 10,000 guidebooks written in Korean and Japanese to Tokyo to mark Korean Independence Movement Day (March 1),” said Seo Kyoungduk, a professor at Sungshin Women‘s University.

“I hope this kind of small act can help Korean visitors to Tokyo to become interested in our historical monuments spread over the world,” Song said.

Two have been working on similar project to provide guidebooks to 12 museums overseas including those in Hangzhou, Shanghai and Los Angeles.

Starting from its Tokyo edition, Song and Seo aim to offer the guidebooks to Kyoto and Vladivostok, Russia to provide information on Korean historical sites in each region.
