Company Bio:


Japan is a dynamic and inspiring destination, a fascinating blend of traditional culture and innovation. An event in Japan is an opportunity to experience new ideas.

Cultural activities and workshops – such as kabuki theatre, sushi classes, or ninja lessons – are totally unique and inspiring. On top of this, Japan is a leading force for research and development across diverse industries. Japan is a place where knowledge and talent meet and intersect with culture and tradition.

For example, after meeting in a state-of-the-art venue, you could experience mouth-watering Japanese cuisine followed by relaxation in a luxurious hot spring. Or if you’re after an adventurous incentive programme, Japan has everything from world-class ski resorts to verdant mountain trails to tropical beaches – all easily accessible by an extensive domestic transportation system famous for its second-to-none precision.

The Japan Convention Bureau, part of the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), is your guide to planning events in Japan. As the national convention bureau we offer a range of support to meeting and event planners considering Japan as a destination. We can offer:

– Tailored advice about cities and venues

– Inspiration for cultural activities, gastronomy, and other program highlights

– Solutions for logistics

– Support for site visits

– A network of trusted suppliers and domestic partners
