Zhangjiajie Showcases Culture and Tourism in Tokyo

On May 14, Hunan's Zhangjiajie City organized a conference in Tokyo, Japan, to promote its rich culture and tourism. Themed "Wonderland Zhangjiajie," the event attracted over 100 attendees, including Liu Ge'an, Secretary of the CPC Zhangjiajie Municipal Committee; Chen Zheng, Minister Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Japan; Ouyang An, Director of Tokyo Office of the China National Tourism Office; and representatives from the Japan Tourism Agency, Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA), as well as Japanese travel professionals and media outlets.

During the conference, Zhangjiajie's tourism ambassador presented the city's cultural and tourism assets in Japanese, allowing attendees to experience the unique allure of Zhangjiajie firsthand. The event's highlight was a lucky draw, where over 10 winners received cultural creative products and ticket packages to visit Zhangjiajie.

Post-conference, participants networked with the Zhangjiajie delegation. Tourism businesses from both Japan and Zhangjiajie engaged in deep discussions on promoting Zhangjiajie's tourism offerings in Japan and expanding the Japanese tourism market. Japanese travel agencies expressed strong interest in developing travel routes to Zhangjiajie.
