The official tweet:

We tried our best to translate it to English:

We confirmed that the frequency to encounter Lapras has been increased in the coastal area of Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefecture. The phenomenon will continue until 23 Nov.
It’s time to travel there where you can experience Tohoku district! We believe that you can find a lot of awesome things besides Pokémon GO.


These areas were affected by tsunami in 2011. It is a good step by Niantic to encourage people to travel to Tohoku region to catch Lapras while enjoying the coastal scenery.
