Japan to feature on CH9 Getaway
SYDNEY October 8, 2015 – Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) Sydney Office was proud to support a recent trip to Japan by Nine Network’s Getaway.
The first of the Japan stories will air on Nine Network at 5.30pm on Saturday October 10th and Saturday November 21st. The remaining stories will air in 2016 on dates to be announced.
It was presenter Jesinta Campbell’s first trip to Japan and the country “really turned it on” for her despite some rainy days at the start of the trip. The crew visited the world heritage listed and recently restored Himeji Castle; experienced traditional Japan in Kyoto with a maiko experience and rickshaw ride; indulged in delicious cuisine including ‘fire ramen’; and got adventurous in Nara, training at a ninja village and attending a sushi making lesson. These experiences offered an enchanting adventure in Japan, a land of mixed culture where the modern harmoniously blends in with the traditional.
