Six new Japanese destinationsSix new destinations, including Kyushu, Okinawa, Setouchi, Tohoku, Wakayama, and Hokaido have been launched by Japan for Indonesian tourists, Hideki Tomiyoka who is Japan National Tourism Organisation’s (JNTO) executive director said on Thursday. It was launched by JNTO representative in Jakarta.


While Osaka and Tokyo have been Indonesian’s favorites, Japan also has six other attractive regions for tourists who want to experience the country’s four seasons, he added in a press conference in Jakarta.


Japan’s tourism organisation has taken more serious actions to promote the
country as a moslem-friendly destination, mainly for Indonesians.


“There are many restaurants in Tokyo, for example, which have already put halal labels on their food products, Tomiyoka noted.


Not only by the organisation’s executive director and manager Kristiana Susanti, the launching was also attended by representatives from airlines, including Garuda Indonesia, Cathay Pacific, All Nippon Airways, and Singapore Airlines.


A deputy division head of Indonesia’s national bank, Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI), Okki Rushartomo also showed up at the event.


The growth of Indonesians travellers to Japan has soared by 31.2 per cent with 271,000 visitors recorded last year, Tomiyoka pointed out that the rise was much contributed by Muslim travellers.
