Japan National Tourism Organization

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) was founded in 1964 with the mission of encouraging international travelers to visit Japan. Affiliated with the Japan Tourism Agency of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, JNTO has effectively functioned as the Japanese government bureau of tourism. JNTO has tourism-promotion offices in major cities worldwide and maintains an extensive network of experts specializing in tourism and business events in Japan. Within JNTO, the Japan Convention Bureau (JCB), focuses on attracting international conferences and incentive tours to Japan.
