A Government Partnership is the highest level of public-sector involvement in JapanTravel.com. We offer a variety of services focused on letting local government organizations appeal to the national and international foreign audience. Some services are charged and some are free. We welcome discussions that maximize local government budgets and yet produce real tourist numbers.
RSS feeds are a way for you to automatically pass tourism events information from one of your sites to us. And if you don’t have an events site, we can make and manage one for you. The feeds will appear on the appropriate local region landing page on our website, and if such a landing page does not exist, we will create one for your village, town, city, or region. We note that landing page feeds are ONLY available to local governments and Non-profit Organizations.

Lack of information about your area may be a major reason you are not getting as many tourists as you should. Our Write-ups service allows you to have a professional writer from our team to produce between 50-100 articles about top sightseeing, eating, accommodation, and shopping locations in your region. These write-ups are not only posted to our site but are free for you to re-use as you wish – such as for your own website, social media, print brochures, etc.
We can also help you target conventions planners in companies and foreign government organizations. Through our online and print expertise, we are able to help you either build a new website or create pages on our website, do social media and direct marketing, run print/ad campaigns to the target audiences, and even do direct contract sales to organizations abroad.
By the end of 2012 we will launch an English/Chinese service desk for travelers who are having difficulties. This service will be rolled out nationwide, however to make it work properly, we need substantial levels of local information to ensure that the service is accurate and helpful. Therefore, we are looking to local government partners to start sponsoring projects to develop such information.
If you are interested in having us provide you with more information or follow-up on any of the material presented above, please fill out the following inquiry form. Inquiries are welcome in Japanese, English, or Chinese.
