Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has announced the opening of a dedicated office in Japan. The new location marks the company’s 15th in Asia.

Hatsuko Tsujimura, a lawyer with over 12 years of experience in the travel industry, will lead the Abercrombie & Kent team in Japan as the region’s country manager. Tsujimura steps into her new position with a strong background in designing itineraries, negotiating with suppliers and coordinating logistics.

Explaining why the Abercrombie & Kent decided to build the new office, China Managing Director Kath Fok pointed to the extreme growth the company has seen in the country, especially pertaining to luxury small group travel and tailor made private travel. By building its own office, said the director, the company will be better positioned to manage logistics and provide insider access and personalized service.
