Briefing and business sessions about Tohoku tourism were held in Hong Kong and Guangzhou in China from 7th to 8th of November. At the briefing, we reported how we are recovering from the March 11 earthquake together with the latest tourism information and itinerary recommendations from tourist spots such as the newly recognized World Heritage cultural site, Hiraizumi, while municipal tourism authorities and 26 representatives from private sectors discussed businesses in detail as well as exchanged information with local counterparts.
Tours from Hong Kong to Tohoku are now available for booking, following a charter flight brought visitors to Tohoku on November 3rd. Winter is coming in Tohoku; it’s ideal to enjoy skiing and fun-filled events such as snow festivals. We look forward to welcoming people from Hong Kong and Guangzhou to white Tohoku.
