OCVB welcomes first Russian group to visit Okinawa

Date Posted: 2012-06-29

An incentive tour for Russian employees of the Yokohama Gum Russia Company brought 50 people to Okinawa, with the Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau playing host.

It was the first ever tour from Russia to Okinawa. The employee-tourists traveled from Russia to Okinawa via Tokyo for the four-day, five-night trip. The Okinawa Convention Bureau says there are schedules for every day of their visit, including options for Shuri Castle and Churaumi Aquarium in Motobu.

The visit was a reciprocal after Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau participated in an exhibition tour of Russia in March. Jumbo Tours was involved with the exhibition, and coordinated this visit with HIS Russia.

The Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau says there’s plenty of demand for beach resorts in Russia, because much of their land is in a cold zone. OCVB says “we are planning to promote Russian tours and visits very actively in the future.”
