Japan is currently one of the world's most spotlighted tourist destinations. The Japanese Government has set a target of drawing 40 million tourists to Japan annually by 2020, the year of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Although it is double the current number, it seems that the target is not so difficult to achieve, taking the recent speed of increase into consideration.
With the rapid increase in the number of inbound tourists, the tourism business is flourishing in Japan. Why don't you enter in to Japan's most expected growing industry? Japan's largest-scale exhibition where parties concerned in inbound tourism businesses gather together will be held. We encourage travel ag encies with overseas tourism business expertise and inbound tourism service providers to visit the exhibition, broaden their business and succeed.
