JNTO's Initiatives

Overview of Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO)

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) was established as Japan’s first governmental tourism organization in 1964, the year the Tokyo Olympics was held. The JNTO is a public organization that has been specializing in promoting tourism in Japan for 50 years and holds overseas offices in numerous major cities around the world. These overseas offices play core roles at the forefront of each regional market by promoting inbound tourism to Japan from each country.

Process Behind JNTO's Educational Travel in Japan

The JNTO engages in promotional activities for every regional market and functions as a centralized reception for the acceptance of tourists requesting educational travel to Japan.

Promotional Activities for Each Regional Market

・ Conduct seminars promoting educational travel in Japan with Japanese municipalities, overseas school staff, and travel agencies
・ Invite overseas schools staff to Japan and provide them with example itineraries
・ Publish pamphlets promoting travel in Japan

Information Desk

・ When an overseas school requests to visit a school in a particular region in Japan, we put them in touch with the office for the region or prefecture that meets that request's specifications and facilitate the exchange agreement.
