Tourism Ireland CEO Niall Gibbons is in Japan this week, undertaking a series of engagements with key decision-makers in the Japanese travel sector, including the president of JATA (Japan Association of Travel Agents), which has 1,000 travel agency members around Japan; the director of the Japan Tourism Bureau, the official agents for the 2019 Rugby World Cup;and senior representatives of Miki Tourist, one of Japan’s top travel agents.

In 2016, we welcomed approximately 20,000 Japanese visitors to the island of Ireland.

Screen tourism – and, in particular, our connections with Star Wars and Game of Thrones – has helped raise the profile of the island of Ireland in Japan in recent years.

Last August, the Japanese version of Tourism Ireland’s international website, Ireland.com, was launched, with support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade – to build greater awareness of the island of Ireland among Japanese travellers.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said:

“2017 marks the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Japan, so I’m delighted to be in Tokyo this week and to have the opportunity to meet with key players in the Japanese travel trade, including Club Tourism International Inc, which has organised the first ever direct flight from Asia to Ireland this August.”
