JNTO sends e-Learning best and brightest to Japan
The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) will send exemplary performers in their e-Learning programme on one of two famils to Japan to experience the country’s unique wonders for themselves in October 2016.
The first of the two options will take the lucky winners on a tour through Japan’s “Golden Route,” consisting of stops and activities at Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima.
The second will take participants on an outdoor journey through Japan’s Alpine Route, stopping at Kyoto and Osaka to experience their metropolitan splendours.
Participants can look forward to experiencing a wide range of activities, from tasting the best sake Hiroshima has to offer, to a cycling adventure along the Shimanami Kaido cycling track.
JNTO Sydney Office’s Executive Director, Ms. Mariko Tatsumi, said the trip was an excellent way for successful agents to see how they could put their knowledge to practical use.
“We feel that, given Japan’s growth as a travel destination for Australians, agents who complete the programme will have an important edge in the industry,” she said.
“This famil is a great opportunity for agents to enjoy the same experiences they’ll be sending their clients on.”
Since its launch in March, JNTO’s e-Learning programme has attracted more than 400 participants.
The competition will run until 15 August 2016, after which the winners will be announced.
The free JNTO e-Learning programme is available at https://elearning.jnto.org.au/ and is compatible with both desktop and mobile devices.
