Japanese TV and music stars iconic WA road trip film to boost Western Australia tourism

Published on : Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Japanese television star and musician Takeshi Tsuruno has embarked on an iconic road trip from Perth to Monkey Mia for a Japanese travel show to be broadcast on BS Fuji TV.

 

The show will highlight experiences that are attractive to Japanese travellers including interacting with wildlife and nature, viewing wildflowers and indulging in fresh local seafood.

 

The two-hour program, called Tsuruno Tabi, follows Mr Tsuruno and his friends Rui Tsubota and Shinya Ueda as they explore Western Australia’s beautiful Coral Coast region.

 

The group will travel through Perth before hitting the road to Monkey Mia. Along the way they will stop and explore a range of destinations including Lancelin, Cervantes, the Pinnacles, Geraldton, Mingenew, Mullewa, Kalbarri, Coalseam Conservation Park, Shark Bay, Hamelin Pool and Shell Beach.

 

The WA episode of Tsuruno Tabi marks the first time the show has been filmed outside of Japan and is part of the promotion by Tourism WA, Tourism Australia and All Nippon Airways (ANA) of the new direct flights between Tokyo and Perth.

 

The program is expected to go to air before the end of the year on BS Fuji, which is a free-to-air satellite TV network available to around 40 million households in Japan.

 

The flights, which launched on September 1, 2019, are expected to bring an additional 76,000 visitors to WA over the next three years and inject $175.5 million to the State’s economy.

 

Tourism WA has also worked with key distribution partners in Japan to develop a new range of WA travel packages which include the ANA flights. Trade familiarisations and travel agent training will also raise awareness of the direct service and WA as a desirable holiday destination.
