The 2nd Japan Travel Fair in Manila, Philippine
The Foundation for Kansai Region Promotion set up an exhibition in the 2nd Japan Travel Fair on Oct. 1 and 2. The event was organized by Japan National Tourism Organization as Japan PR event for the general public and was held at a shopping mall in Manila. 10 local travel agencies and airlines and 3 local governments from Japan set up booth at the venue and sold travel products or provided information to visitors, which numbered 21,000 for the 2 days.
As it was an event specializing in PR of Japan, many visitors seemed familiar with Japan. However many only knew Tokyo and Osaka and did not know other areas of the Kansai region. On the other hand many asked for transportation information and it became clear that many people travel individually not in a group tour.
The Foundation will continue to plan and develop promotional activities including providing correct information to increase the number of tourists from Philippine.
