French agent Kumano FAM trip
From February 16 to 19 Wakayama Prefecture and Kyoto city sponsored a FAM trip for a group of 10 travel agents from France. The Tanabe City KumanoTourism Bureau supported with planning and guiding of this tour.
The tour visited sites along the KumanoKodo pilgrimage route and the Kumano Sanzan shrines; Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Nachi Taisha, and Kumano Hayatama Taisha.
Three of the main hot spring areas were also included in this tour; Yunomine Onsen, Kawayu Onsen, and RyujinOnsen.
All of the agents were impressed with the area and are hoping to include Kumano in new itineraries to introduce their guests to this unique region in Japan.
Thank you so much to all of the agents for joining this tour and for the local businesses and associations who helped make it a success.
