New project: Free documents to support Japanese people welcoming foreigners

I am preparing Inner Japan Web pages and printable PDF documents to support Japanese people welcoming foreign visitors in Japan: staff at ports and airports, train/subway stations, bus/ferry terminals, taxi companies, hotels and ryokans, homes and B&Bs, restaurants and bars, coffee shops and teahouses, convenience stores, supermarkets, departments stores, souvenir/gift shops, specialist shops, temples and shrines, museums and galleries, movie theatres, police stations, hospitals… Foreigners’ life, work and travel in Japan should become easier and more enjoyable :)

To start, I am listing sentences in Japanese, English and French to use at souvenir/gift shops and restaurants. The PDF documents will be available online for free on the “Welcome foreigners!” project page of Inner Japan Website.

If you wish to promote Japan, its culture or local events/activities, You are welcome to contact me to discuss the next steps of this new project!

Seminar for travel agents in Tokyo: Business School + Tourism in Japan

Today, I enjoyed an active seminar organized in 東京 (Tokyo) at 学校法人トラベルジャーナル学園ホスピタリティツーリズム専門学校 (Trajal Hospitality & Tourism College) to discuss the future of tourism in Japan and of 旅行産業経営塾 (Business School of Travel Industry) with colleagues from diverse Japanese travel agencies. We also celebrated the 80th anniversary of our teacher 山田・學 (YAMADA Manabu). A specialist even flew from 鳥取県 (Tottori prefecture) to attend this seminar!
