From November 25 to 26, 2010 the Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau participated in Travel Mart 2010 at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall in Chiba. The organizers of this event were the Japan Tourism Agency and the Japan National Tourism Organization.
There were hundreds of tour companies from around the world coming as "buyers". Government agents and companies from all over Japan made up the "sellers".
Our bureau was matched with companies from Europe, Australia, Canada, Taiwan, Korean, and China. Many of them were interested in the area for clients looking for off-the-beaten path destinations.
