Japan National Tourism Organization Responds to Japan Crisis

March 29, 2011

President of Japan National Tourism Organization Takatoshi Mamiya released a statement yesterday, March 28, detailing the JNTO's stance on the Japan situation. Read on for the full statement:

Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) would like to express our sympathy and condolences to all the people who have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. We would also like to express our sincere respect and gratitude to those who have been involved with the relief and recovery efforts.

We are very fortunate to have received many warm messages, encouragement, and support from all over the world; especially we know many citizens, regardless of their origin and nationality, have made generous contributions to relief organizations such as the Red Cross.
The devastating disaster has had an enormous impact on Japan’s inbound tourism. While many areas in Japan remained unaffected by the disaster, they are also suffering from the sudden decrease in international visitors.  We are deeply concerned that this will not only affect Japan’s tourism industry directly, but also will have a very negative impact on our industry partners around the world.
JNTO is committed to provide timely information on the current situation to the travel industry and to the public through our website; however, considering there still exists some possibility of aftershocks and the highest priority has to be given to rescue and relief efforts, the Japanese Government has decided to pause its tourism promotion activities temporarily.
Once the situation in Japan stabilises, we will strive to resume all promotional activities as soon as possible.  We look forward to warmly welcoming our visitors in the very near future, and thank you again for your continuous support.
