‘U.S.-Japan Tourism Year 2024’ is launched to strengthen tourism and business exchanges between the two countries

Last Updated : 12/06/2023

According to the Travel Voice News on 30th November 2023  U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel and Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Tetsuo Saito signed a memorandum of cooperation designating 2024 as the ‘U.S.-Japan Tourism Year.’ to strengthen tourism and business exchanges between U.S. and Japan, which have declined due to the coronavirus pandemic.


The U.S.-Japan Tourism Year is a game-changer, opening new avenues for economic growth and deepening our bonds,” Ambassador Rahm said. “This initiative isn’t just about travel; it’s about strengthening ties, boosting economies, and exchanging culture.”

“We hope the Tourism Year will provide an opportunity for all of us to reconnect with old friends and acquaintances with whom we have fallen out of touch due to the pandemic,” Minster Saito said. “The U.S. and Japan share 464 sister-city relationships, and we hope our two countries will take advantage of the Tourism Year to resume and further promote exchange at the local level.” Also, he mentioned 2024 will mark the 90th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s visit to Japan for the Japan-U.S. baseball team, and expressed his desire to “deepen tourism exchanges through sports.”

Business Travel Management

Adapting to changing business travel

Work Efficiency

What kind of procedures do you and your employees follow when making reservations for airline tickets and hotels for business trips?


Risk Management

After experiencing the unprecedented pandemic caused by the new coronavirus, there is an increased focus on risk management. We propose “risk management” solutions for the purpose of the safety and health of business travelers.


Cost Reduction

More urgent business trip, more cost than necessary! According to our analysis, the largest expense within the total corporate travel costs is the airfare, accounting for nearly half. Additionally, affordable flight tickets and hotels may not always represent the optimal conditions.


Enhancement of Governance

In today’s business environment, it is common for companies to spread out all over the world and conduct global business activities. Among them, Business Travel Management (BTM) focuses on the proper planning and management of frequent and business-related travel by corporate employees and executives.
