Tourism & Exchange Division organized a tourism promotion event “Girls, be a traveler! – Let’s go to ASEAN” which targeted young women, to commemorate Visit ASEAN@50, Golden Celebration.
A talk show was held by inviting Ms. Hinako Umemura Hinako (Hinanchu) as a guest speaker. Ms. Umemura is the leader of Silent Siren, a girls’ band that has a huge fan base among young women. She spent her childhood in Indonesia and also visited other ASEAN Member States with her family and on her entertainment business. She shared her personal travel experiences with the audiences enthusiastically.
In addition, editor in chief of an ASEAN tourism information website TRIPPING! introduced the basics of ASEAN. A lucky draw was also held with attractive prizes like roundtrip air tickets to ASEAN cities and hotel accommodation vouchers, which was another event highlight.
Results of the questionnaire show that event participants who were not familiar with ASEAN or overseas travel could learn about ASEAN tourism by attending the event.
The ASEAN-Japan Centre will continue to organize various promotional programs to introduce attractiveness of ASEAN.
