Cool Japan Travel Fair: 'Japan You've Never Seen Yet'

AUGUST 23, 2019

Jakarta. HIS Travel Indonesia hosted its annual Cool Japan Travel Fair at Summarecon Mall Serpong on Friday. 

The title for this year's fair was "Japan You've Never Seen Yet," and as expected, the mall was replete with Japan-themed booths, events and shows for the whole day. 

The fair, usually held in Jakarta, was moved to Tangerang this year. 

"There's always a reason for a vacation to Japan," Hideaki Oshima, the president director of HIS Travel, said in a press release.

"Sometimes [people] want to go back because they miss Japanese food, or they want to explore natural sights they can't see anywhere else, or experience the authentic culture of Japan," Hideaki said.

Like in previous fairs, Friday's Cool Japan Travel Fair offered promo fares to the best tourist destinations in Japan. 

This year's fair was held in partnership with HSBC and ANA Airlines. HSBC customers were able to get a cashback of up to Rp 1 million ($70), 0 percent interest on six-month installments and Rp 1 million shopping vouchers.

The fair's best deal is the "Tokyo All In" promo with prices starting from Rp 5.5 million, including flights and hotels. 

There were also fun shows and activities during the fair, including the Traveling Minimalist Talkshow with Ringgo, the Mt. Fuji Marathon Challenge Talkshow, a Bento Creation Contest with Chef Aiko and a Coswalk Performance.
