Message from our sales persons

 

Greetings from JTBGMT Western Japan Office!

May of this year marked one month since our office was established. We are a small family with a total of 16 people, but each of us has been executing our duties of making proposals, estimates and arrangements for various plans while demonstrating our expertise in various fields of specialty.

In Kyoto, where our office is located, the cherry blossom season is already over and we are about to enter the season of fresh green leaves. However, traditional events with a history of more than 1,000 years will continue to be held with the Aoi Festival in May, the Gion Festival in July and Gozan no Okuribi (bonfire ceremony) in August. Moreover, washoku (Japanese food) was registered as an intangible world cultural heritage last year, so the attention of foreign countries is becoming increasingly focused on Kyoto, which is the home of washoku.

The Western Japan Sales Office will continue to provide support with the spirit of omotenashi (hospitality) in order to meet the expectations of everyone. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Kyoto.
