Several Japanese tourists have settled in Cappadocia region, famous for its fairy chimneys and underground cities in central Anatolian region of Turkey.
Japanese tourists who came to Cappadocia to spend their holiday married Turkish men and settled there, as many European and American people did.
The number of Japanese women who married Turks and settled in Cappadocia reached almost 100.
European and American nationals mainly preferred Goreme, Uchisar and Ortahisar, while Japanese ones preferred to live in Urgup.
Japanese women said they were happy to live there.
Chiharu Ceri (32) who got married with Ali Ceri (36) has been living in Urgup for five years.
Chiharu said she loved Cappadocia and got accustomed to cultural differences thanks to Turkish people's hospitality and friendly manner.
Cappadocia which is unique in the world and is a miraculous nature wonder with its famous "fairy chimneys," is the common name of the field covered by the provinces of Aksaray, Nevsehir, Nigde, Kayseri and Kirsehir in the central Anatolian region.
