Japan at World Travel Market 2015

It has been a revolutionary year for tourism to Japan with global visitor numbers up 49% year-on-year for January-August 2015, and the 2015 Post Office Long Haul report released on 26 September showing Tokyo is now 50% cheaper for British travellers than it was in 2013. So now is a great time to start or expand your Japan holiday product range. 

This year there will be representatives from the destinations of Okinawa, Kansai, Kyushu and, for the first time, Gifu on the Japan stand (AS370) at World Travel Market. They will be joining Japan National Tourism Organization, along with hoteliers and ground handlers from Japan. 

Giveaways on the Japan Stand at WTM

Japan Tourism will be giving away Japan travel toothbrushes for everyone who stops by and asks about Japan’s online training programme. Everyone who completes Japan Online Training will get a set of beautiful Mt. Fuji sake cups.

While at the Japan stand, be sure to enter the Gifu lottery for a chance to win fabulous prizes from Gifu Prefecture - from delicious, high-quality Japanese sake to \'sarubobo\' dolls from Gifu\'s northern region of Hida, every item up for grabs is unique to the particular area of Gifu that it is from.

Photo Opportunities

On Monday, 2 November and Tuesday, 3 November Japanese kabuki actors from Gifu in extravagant make-up and costumes will be on the Japan stand. Gifu Prefecture, most well-known for its UNESCO World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go and the old castle town of Takayama, is making its first appearance at WTM, and it\'s bringing traditional Japanese culture along with it! Visitors to the Japan booth can mingle and take photos with local kabuki performers. Find out more here

Representatives from the hot spring resort town of Kinosaki Onsen will be wearing traditional yukata, just as locals and guests do in this historic resort in Japan’s Kansai region. Come along and see what you or your customers could be wearing on a spa holiday in Japan.
