What do you think of when you think of Japan?
Sushi? Kyoto? Anime?
Of course, you know there is much more that this country has to offer.
Recently, the model for getting tourists to visit Japan
has been changing. The Japanese government wants to
make Japan a top tourist destination as part of a new strategy
for growth. Even now, in resource-limited Japan, tourism is
is planned to become a vital national industry.
Dentsu, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world,
has established a specialist team devoted to the
"Travel Destination Project", which is marketing Japan's
appeal domestically and internationally through promotional
activities in coordination with a variety of organizations.
(Dentsu Homepage: http://www.dentsu.co.jp/lineup/social/project.html)
Together with Dentsu, the ICC will hold a creative group competition
that will look for a new appeal for Japan that can be used to promote
tourism. Each group will have 4 people who will work together on a
presentation about "Unique Theme Tourism only Possible with the
Rich Diversity of Japan." The presenation will be given to an audience
at a group competition.
The contest proposals will be judged by Watanabe Hiroyuki, the Assistant
Director of the Social Solutions Division of Dentsu, which is leading
the Japan Tourism Project. Mr. Watanabe is also a graduate of
