The capital of Japan attracted meeting planners with great excitement
Hosted by Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau, an exciting 4 nights/5days FAM trip was successfully held inviting 10 APAC meeting planners, which allowed them to inspect capital hotels and unique venues while offering the chance to build the fruitful face-to-face network with the local suppliers.
One of the highlights of the trip was a 2-hour evening cruise on yakatabune, the traditional Japanese boat equipped with a variety of facilities, exclusively chartered for the group. After having been welcomed on board by two ladies in gorgeous kimonos, the planners enjoyed to the fullest seasonal delicious Japanese cuisines including fresh-from-the-fryer tempura while cruising around the Odaiba area, SKYTREE and other Tokyo main tourist attractions. The dance performance by kimono ladies added a touch of authentic Japanese charm to the whole entertainment program.
In Tokyo, many other value-added programs can be organized almost unlimitedly. A private party, for example, may start with the ritual opening of the sake-cask or tuna cutting show followed by sushi making experience, which could amuse participants with an unforgettable memory as a unique event.
Yakatabune originated in Tokyo, is one of the best ways to admire the Tokyo night view while enjoying authentic Japanese cuisines. It can be organized regardless of the season and accommodate as many as 120 people. Depending on the preference, either traditional tatami style or table/chair style can be perfectly arranged.
