Iran proposes having tourism exhibit in Japan

September 15, 2018

TEHRAN – Tehran’s ambassador to Tokyo on Saturday proposed holding an exhibit of Iran’s handicrafts and tourism potential in Japan.

Morteza Rahmani-Movahed brought forward the suggestion in a meeting with Tadashi Shimura who presides over the Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA), Mehr reported.

“Implementing this proposal depends on appropriate support from the JATA,” the Iranian envoy said.

Shimura, for his part, welcomed the proposal, noting that introduction of Iran’s tourist attractions to Japanese people opens up a great opportunity in which Japanese media and travel agencies can also take part.

“Japanese tourists are more interested in monumental and historical buildings yet prefer eco-lodges to hotels,” Shimura noted.

Last week, Rahmani-Movahed submitted his credentials to Japanese Emperor Akihito.
