The MOU was signed on June 16, 2023, when Beyond Pooh Corner producers, including Winvest executives Jeffrey Wong, Khiow Hui Lim, and Charlene Logan Kelly, visited Kofu City, the capital of Yamanashi Prefecture, located roughly 1.5 hours west of Tokyo in an area known for its stunning views of Mount Fuji. The MOU was co-signed by the local mayor and governor during a press conference at Kofu City Hall that followed several days of exploring potential filming locations, meetings with local merchants, and discussions with local government officials about how Beyond Pooh Corner could impact tourism and merchandising.
