Kyoto, Japan Launches ‘I’m Turning Japanese!’ Authentic Experiential Holiday Package

Kyoto, Japan’s ancient imperial capital for over 1,000 years and home to Japan’s many cultural traditions, arts and crafts, has struck a chord with the hearts and minds of an increasing number of nationals from the Middle East, with the total number of visitors from the region choosing to overnight in Kyoto increasing by 8% in 2017 compared to 2016 figures. The popularity of Kyoto has been particularly felt among Emirati nationals, which recorded an increase of 18% in overnight stays in 2017 compared to 2016 figures.


To further encourage Middle Eastern guests to visit and return to Kyoto, Kyoto City Tourism Association has launched a new experiential travel package specifically designed for Middle Eastern guests. Titled ‘I’m Turning Japanese!’, the holiday package includes:

  •  2 nights stay at either a 4 star or 5 star hotel with breakfast
  •  City tour
  •  Authentic traditional kimono wearing experience
  •  Original Ramen noodle cooking class at Kyoto’s certified Halal Ramen restaurant


The ‘I’m Turning Japanese’ promotional package is valid from May 1st through to August 31st, 2018, and is available at G.C.C. travel agencies or by contacting:


Kyoto City Tourism Association UAE Office: tyamamoto@aviareps.com


4 star packages with stays at the Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande start from AED 1,550 for 2 people twin room share, and from AED 1,890 for a 5 star package with stays at the Hotel Granvia Kyoto, for two people, twin room share. (Package prices do not include airfare).


The ‘I’m Turning Japanese!’ holiday packages were launched at the Arabian Travel Market, the Middle East’s largest tourism exhibition, which was held from April 22 – 25, 2018 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, where the Kyoto City Tourism Association was exhibiting.
