Japan: An Incentive Destination!

September 2015


Japan is an attractive destination which impresses planners and inspires each guest. Japan has all the ingredients of a successful program, from superb accessibility, fascinating culture, breathtaking landscape, tantalizing entertainment, gourmet dining, world class facility, cutting-edge Technology, and most uniquely, heart-warming hospitality, which we call it “Omotenashi”, the essence of Japanese hospitality.

Japan offers a variety of destinations. Most famously, Tokyo - one of the largest global city and, Kyoto - the former capital of Japan with more than 1,100 years of history, which is famous worldwide for its temple and shrines. Moreover, Japan has so many destinations to offer from northern ski resort Hokkaido to southern beach island Okinawa as Japanese archipelago stretches over a long distance from north to south, and each region has its own distinct and changing climate, culture, and traditions.

A most popular itinerary especially for first visitor to Japan features metropolitan Tokyo and ancient capital Kyoto, and below is an example;  

Day 1
