Singaporean Market: “NATAS Holidays 2014”


   The Foundation of Kansai Region Promotion participated at “NATAS Holidays 2014” which is an international travel fair held in Singapore for three days from August the 29th to August the 31st. The Foundation promoted the Kansai region as a tourist destination and gave information to visitors at the fair.
   At the travel fair Japan National Tourism Organization provided a “Japan Pavilion” where twenty Japanese organizations including the Foundation set up booths to promote Japan. The booths introduced the seasonal attractions of Japan, in particular, the seasonal charms of autumn and winter. All the booths were beautifully decorated with pictures of colored leaves, snow, hot springs, foods and other special scenery in a unified manner. Many visitors came to the Kansai booth at the Japan Pavilion and enquired about information such as transportation and accommodation in the Kansai area. Some questions were more specific such as flowering seasons and weather. It was also discovered that many Singaporeans wanted to know more about other destinations located around major cities the Kansai region, such as Osaka, Kyoto and Nara and that it was important to promote consolidated activities as Kansai as a whole not individualized ones by prefecture/city. The Foundation continues to cooperate with related organizations to promote the charm of the Kansai to Singapore and other South East Asian countries.
