JNTO’s Japan Luxury Showcase highlights Japan as a luxury destination

Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info (JNTO) Sydney Office invited a mix of 5 product managers and travel advisors from Australia on a 6-night fully hosted tour of Japan from 16-22 June 2018. The purpose of the famil was to introduce local luxury travel professionals to the idyllic Shinshu region, an ideal luxury travel destination year-round, but particularly in the summertime due to its temperate climate and wealth of outdoor attractions, and the Hokuriku region, which is renowned for its art and traditional culture. The tour culminated in business meetings with local suppliers in the glistening metropolis of Tokyo.

The week-long trip was packed from beginning to end, starting with an inspection of a local winery and lunch in the quiet hillsides of Karuizawa, Nagano; continued on to Kanazawa, considered a “Little Kyoto” due to its history and rich culture; and ended back in Tokyo with inspections of local five-star hotels, with a heavy focus on artisans and local outdoor experiences throughout.

Highlights of the tour included experiencing the Gran Class on Japan’s Hokuriku shinkansen (bullet train), feasting on ice-cream covered in gold-leaf, wildlife tours to enjoy musasabi (Japanese flying squirrel) and local bird watching, dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant and enjoying dinner in the company of an enchanting maiko (geisha).

Accommodation throughout the trip ranged from pure high-end western luxury to traditional Japanese onsen ryokan (traditional Japanese inn with hot springs). Upon arrival in Tokyo, participants spent their first night in Japan at Palace Hotel Tokyo, located adjacent to its namesake, the Imperial Palace. Their next destination was Karuizawa Prince Hotel East, the newest addition to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection in Japan. In Kanazawa, in addition to staying at the small boutique hotel Sainoniwa, inspections were held at Kanazawa Tokyu Hotel and ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa. For an onsen ryokan experience, participants stayed at Hoshinoya Kai Kaga. To finish off the trip with an air of complete luxury, their final home away from home for two nights was the Ritz Carlton Tokyo.

“I am confident that we shall grow visitor levels to Japan, thanks not only to my recent experience, but to the contacts I gained at the Luxury Travel event” said participant Melanie Wynne, Product Development Manager of Phil Hoffmann Travel.

In addition to facilitating the development of high-end products to Japan for Australian travellers, JNTO also aims to educate and inspire the Australian travel industry with the quality and variety of high calibre services and experiences on offer.

JNTO and AirAsia partner to help Australian travellers find their ‘ikigai’ in Japan

Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info (JNTO) has partnered with AirAsia to launch an exciting digital campaign called ‘The Secret Scrolls of Ikigai’, which aims to help young Australian travellers discover their true passion in Japan.

Ikigai is an age-old Japanese concept that means ‘your reason for being’. Your ikigai is what drives you to get up in the morning. It gives you purpose, and with it, can lead to what we keep searching for… longevity and joyful living.

In The Secret Scrolls of Ikigai, players solve a series of Japan travel-related riddles to unlock the Secret Scroll of Ikigai, and go in the draw to win return flights for two from Australia to Japan flying AirAsia.

JNTO Sydney Executive Director Kana Wakabayashi, said “Japan is a travel destination that has something for everyone. I invite Australian travellers to visit for themselves, and find their true passion! Whether it’s hiking through pristine forests or dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant, staying in a Buddhist temple in Koyasan or learning karate in Okinawa, Japan has it all.”

AirAsia X Group Head of Commercial Barry Klipp, said “Japan is rich in history and tradition. Unlocking these secrets through a unique campaign like ‘The Secret Scrolls of Ikigai’ would help to showcase the breadth of our network to Australians, alongside fantastic fare offers.”

The Secret Scrolls of Ikigai online campaign runs from 4 June to 15 July 2018 and is available on both desktop and mobile devices. Play now: cash1970.info/secretscrolls

JNTO holds launch event for new global campaign

Yesterday, Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info (JNTO) hosted a launch event at Café Sydney in Circular Quay, to bring to life JNTO’s new global campaign “Enjoy my Japan”. The event was attended by 122 people including prominent media and members of the travel trade.
The event was kicked off by television presenter Stephanie Brantz, who also served as MC of the event. Mr Keizo Takewaka, Consul-General of Japan in Sydney gave a brief introductory speech regarding the current state of tourism between Australian and Japan followed by Ms Kana Wakabayashi, Executive Director of JNTO Sydney Office, introducing the new global campaign to the audience.

Finally, guest speaker Mr Nick Farr-Jones, former captain of the Wallabies, shared his personal experiences of travelling around Japan. Nick spoke about how welcoming Japan is, and also explained that sport is a great opportunity to see a country outside of the normal experiences. More specifically he spoke about the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2019 which will be held across 12 cities in Japan and the great opportunities it provides to experience a different side of Japan.

The event was held to bring attention to JNTO’s new “Enjoy my Japan” campaign, which seeks to entice long-haul travellers to visit Japan and explore the country beyond the well-known popular attractions, and immerse themselves more fully in the rich depths of Japanese nature and culture that exist off the beaten tourist path.

This extensive, multifaceted promotion involves a broad variety of initiatives, including the launch of a dedicated website (www.enjoymyjapan.jp) featuring personalised video clips that show a broad range of activities and scenes not typically associated with Japan, strategically targeted digital advertisements, and television commercials currently airing on both free-to-air and Foxtel.

A cornerstone of the new campaign is the message that Japan literally has something for everyone, and that whatever it is a long-haul traveller goes to an overseas destination for, Japan is ready, willing, and waiting to fulfil their passions. In addition to satisfying visitors from abroad with the familiar, iconic sites and things to see and do the country has long been known for, there is also a desire to foster a richer and more personal experience by making lesser-known places and activities more accessible, especially to entire families and those with an adventurous spirit.

“I’m so happy to have the opportunity to share with everyone our new ‘Enjoy my Japan’ campaign to showcase experiences usually not associated with travel in Japan,” Ms Wakabayashi said. “There is so much more to Japan than the usual experiences, and this is a great campaign that will break down those stereotypes.”

Events have also been held by JNTO offices in other key global cities such as Tokyo, London, Berlin, Paris and New York to showcase the unveiling of the “Enjoy my Japan” website.

Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info partners with Olympic gold medallist Sally Pearson to promote travel to Japan

Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info (JNTO) is pleased to announce a new multichannel marketing campaign featuring Olympic gold medallist and world champion Sally Pearson to promote Japan to Australian travellers. Sally Pearson is one of Australia’s greatest Olympians and one of the fastest 100m hurdlers in history.

With the recent conclusion of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and the upcoming Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, social awareness of major sporting activities is at an all-time high. Pearson was carefully chosen for this campaign to not only utilise her overall popularity but also to tie into one of Australia’s favourite past-times: sports.

At the 2012 London Olympic Games she became just the 10th female Australian track athlete to win a gold medal, smashing the Olympic record in the process. In 2014 Pearson was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for her contribution to sport as a Gold Medallist at the London Olympic Games and most recently Pearson was once again named world champion of the 100m hurdles in 2017.

“We feel this is a great chance to utilise the current interest in sporting events to showcase what Japan has to offer, especially since Japan is hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Tokyo will host the Olympics and Paralympics in 2020,” Kana Wakabayashi, Executive Director of JNTO Sydney Office said. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to work together with a well-known Australian athlete such as Sally Pearson.”

JNTO’s new multi-media campaign will be brought to life through a series of channels ranging from out-of-home advertising to social media and digital marketing. The campaign will run until the end of March and is aiming to highlight the range of unique cultural, traditional and culinary experiences which can be found in Japan.

JNTO’s OOH advertising will be seen across Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney while digital marketing can be spotted on websites such as AWOL, Escape and Traveller. JNTO has also created a short video clip featuring Sally’s personal experience of Japan which will be shared through social media. The clip includes a mix of well-known locations such as the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove (Kyoto) and Himeji Castle (Hyogo), as well as the lesser-known destinations of Ishigaki Island (Okinawa), Usa Jingu Shrine (Oita) and Lake Mashu (Hokkaido), as well as various cultural experiences which can be enjoyed throughout the country.

Travel agents explore Kyushu: the land of fire and water

A group of 8 travel agents from Australia returned from a 6-day familiarisation tour to Japan’s southern island of Kyushu flying with Japan Airlines. The tour was the second of two, fully hosted by Japan National Tourism Organization - cash1970.info (JNTO) to allow top scoring agents of the Japan E-Learning to experience the country’s regional charms.

Kyushu is the land of fire and water; rich in natural beauty, active volcanoes, and some of the nation’s best onsen (natural hot springs).

The agents stayed in a traditional ryokan (Japanese-style inn) in Kagoshima and experienced the therapeutic benefits of sunaburo, sand baths with heated volcanic sand. In Kumamoto, they visited the ancient samurai district of Chiran and one of Japan’s best loved castles, Kumamoto Castle.

Their tour ended in the island’s transport hub and largest city, Fukuoka. They enjoyed a punt cruise down the Yanagawa River and admired the late autumn colours. They shopped at department stores in Tenjin and explored the Christmas Markets.

Throughout the trip they were treated to a wide range of Japanese cuisine which included the famous Hakata ramen, hot-pot at an izakaya (Japanese pub) with all-you-an-drink, and grilled eel bento boxes.

The trip was supported by Japan Airlines, Hilton Hotels and Prince Hotels.
