Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau and Turismo de Santiago de Compostela Joint Promotion launch in Spain
Kumano, where the sun rises
Way of St. James, where the sun sets
This is the first time for our bureau to affiliate with an overseas association and we believe that it is the first of its kind in Japan. Both cities have a central sacred site associated with a registered UNESCO World Heritage pilgrimage route.
To start our joint promotion project, we will collaborate to produce pamphlets and an internet website. We are also working together to share ideas about creating high quality sustainable tourism destinations.
Thank you Turismo de Santiago de Compostela for organizing this trip for us and we look forward to working together to mutually promote and preserve our respective spiritual heritage for many years to come.
