Visit Japan Year 2010 Special Project Lineup JATA Japan Domestic Tours Now On Sale

The Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA) has released a collaborative series of high quality travel tours for sale from Now to March 2011 in association with the Japan Tourism Agency’s Visit Japan Year 2010 Campaign.

These agent-organized roundtrip excursion tours to Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Okinawa include visits to popular sightseeing locations in addition to high quality meals and lodging establishments. Many tours will be operated from just two people, allowing for easy travel to rural areas for individual travelers and small groups. These tours will be conducted by certified English-speaking tour guides making them accessible to even first-time visitors to Japan.

In order to meet the diverse needs of individual travelers to Japan, JATA has also developed simple and reasonable train and hotel package plans. These plans include bullet train tickets connecting Japan’s capital of Tokyo and the popular gourmet and shopping center of Osaka, in addition to accommodations in both cities, airport pick-up, and limousine bus tickets.

Sales of these tours will run together with the Visit Japan Year 2010 Autumn Campaign, and will be conducted from October 2010 to March 2011 (however, train and hotel package plans will begin in August). This project is sponsored by JTB Global Marketing & Travel Inc.

Extensive promotion of these products will be conducted through JATA’s website and the websites of the Japan National Tourism Agency’s foreign offices, as well as the web magazine of the Japan Tourism Agency and other organizations related to the Visit Japan Campaign.
