SYDNEY May 13, 2015 – Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) will host its annual Japan Snow & Adventure Seminar in Sydney (18th May) and Melbourne (25th May) for outbound travel agents, media and airline partners.

At each seminar one lucky attendee will win a return economy class air-ticket to Japan thanks to Japan Airlines and Qantas Airways.
