Hanoi to promote tourism in Japan

The Hanoi Promotion Agency (HPA) will launch a tourism promotion program in Japan and join the Tourism Expo Japan (JATA) 2019 in Osaka later this month, aiming to further exploit the nearly 127 million-strong market.

The HPA booth, themed Hanoi � a safe, friendly, high quality and attractive tourist destination, will highlight the culture and tourism potential of Hanoi and Vietnam, along with main tourism products of the city such as Hoan Kiem Lake, Old Quarter pedestrian streets, craft village tourism and eco-tourism.

Products of localities partnering with Hanoi will be introduced, along with major tourism events in Hanoi, such as the F1 grand prix in April 2020 and SEA Games 2021.

Artists from the Thang Long puppetry theatre will also perform during the week-long exhibition which will begin on Monday.

Last year, the capital city welcomed more than 300,000 Japanese tourists, doubling the previous year's figure.
