The 2009 US Travel Agent Kansai FAM Trip, sponsored by Kansai Unity, took place from November 16~27. This FAM trip was a part of our two year Kansai promotion project, which includes a variety of groups both public and private groups throughout the Kansai region. Three tour companies from California joined this inspection visit.The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau planned and led the Kumano portion of the tour. It was a busy schedule but went smoothly, and the response from the agents was extremely positive. They were very interested to obtain high quality information about off the beaten track areas of Japan.
