The ASEAN-Japan Centre (AJC) jointly organized an event “ASEAN Travel University: a traveler who went around the world talks about ways to enjoy Southeast Asia” with TABIPPO, an online travel medium that promotes traveling by Japanese youths.
Promotion of overseas travel by youths is one of the important themes in the Japanese travel industry. The ASEAN Member States being geographically closer to Japan and affordable, are suitable destinations for the youths. During the event, Mr. Shun Kurosawa, a lecturer of TABIPPO Travel University, appealed charms of ASEAN destinations to participating youths.
The event attracted many participants; majority of them were university students. The event was successful in showcasing attractions of the ASEAN Member States as there were comments by participants saying “I want to visit the ASEAN Member States as soon as tomorrow” and ”I felt the ASEAN Member States are perfect destinations for youths”. Following the talk-show by Mr. Kurosawa, the AJC arranged a networking gathering. The event served as an opportunity to boost the ASEAN Member States as travel destinations in the youth market.
