Message from our President

To me, the word “travel” refers to the movement from where you are now to another place, whether it is for sightseeing or for going to work.

Travel means meeting other people, encountering differences and the unknown, and is an opportunity to gain mutual understanding.

Our desire is to help realize a more peaceful multicultural society by growing the number of people who travel through our efforts to provide essential information, materials, and services to both travelers and those who provide hospitality services.
