The Foundation for Kansai Region Promotion set up Kansai PR booth at Salon International Tourism Voyages (SITV) in Montreal, Canada, on October 21 through 23. SITV is the largest scale travel show in Canada targeted at both general consumers and industry participants. The Kansai booth situated as a part of Japan booth had a flow of visitors all through the days demonstrating visitors’ considerable interest in the Kansai region especially in Kumano area of Wakayama and Kyoto, Japanese foods and cultures.
 
Tourists from the east side of Canada generally visit Japan in a group tour which travels from Tokyo, Chubu (Takayama), Hokuriku (Kanazawa), Kansai (Kyoto and Osaka) and Chugoku (Hiroshima) through Kyushu (Fukuoka and Kagoshima) for 3 weeks or so. The Kansai booth introduced visitors the attractiveness of Kansai which has all of Japan; history, culture, food, nature and sacred spots and promoted a tour route in the Kansai region called as “the Flower of Japan, KANSAI” so that they feel like staying in Kansai for extended period of time to visit various spots in the region.
