Meet Japan

What is Meet Japan?

The “Meet Japan” - Hosted buyers program offers the opportunity to visit Japan’s beautiful regional cities, and to see their superb convention and tourist facilities which meet the criteria of your event. You will learn first-hand about the warm hospitality and unique charms of Japan’s diverse convention cities. JNTO acts as a liaison, matching the needs of your event to what each city and venue has to offer, and we are pleased to provide you with the opportunity to meet with your counterparts in Japan if needed. Meet Japan has been regarded as a highly satisfying program among past participants, and has resulted in the successful organization of many international conferences in the host cities.
