JTB Hawaii, the first Japanese travel company to establish a presence in the Hawaiian Islands with the opening of its Honolulu office in October 1964, celebrated its 50th anniversary Wednesday as one of Hawaii’s leading global destination management companies connecting travelers from all around the world with the Aloha State.
In observance of this milestone, JTB Corporation’s new President and CEO Hiroyuki Takahashi, is visiting Oahu for this special occasion.
With 730 employees and offices on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island, JTB Hawaii has become one of the leading global destination management companies offering reliable and high-quality travel, tour, ground transportation, and entertainment services to more than 430,000 Japanese visitors annually across the Hawaiian Islands.
In honor of its 50th anniversary, JTB Hawaii will be doing its part to continue giving back to the community by setting up an ongoing donation to the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s School of Travel Industry Management. The company will also be establishing the Hanabi Foundation to ensure the annual Nagaoka Hanabi fireworks show remains a part of the Honolulu Festival.
