TORONTO — Travel agents can deepen their knowledge of Japan, one of Asia’s most exciting destinations, and win a $100 gift card by enrolling in the Japan Travel Specialist Online Certification Program.

Launched by the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), and created and designed specifically for travel agents, the program is available in two levels: Japan Travel Advisor and Japan Travel Specialist. Courses are available in both English and French.

Agents who complete both courses in full will be entered to win a $100 gift card. Gift cards will be awarded each month until the end of February 2022. Participating agents will also receive an exclusive certificate and priority invitation to Japan tourism events and seminars.

By taking JNTO’s courses, agents will learn what sets Japan apart so that they can easier sell the destination to both first-time visitors and the many Canadians who return again and again. From Japan’s language to its cuisine and culture, agents will gain in-depth knowledge of classic destinations along the so-called ‘Golden Route’ as well as the country’s countless hidden gems. Courses will also take them through the distinctive character of each part of the country, from unique regional dishes to unmissable festivals and events, from multi-day rock extravaganzas to fireworks displays that fill the summer sky with tens of thousands of colourful explosions.

Between 1999 and 2019, visitors to Japan leapt sevenfold, from below 4.5 million to nearly 32 million. Known for both its dense cities and breathtaking natural beauty, the nation awaits with mountains, lakes, beaches, islands and forested hills topped with ancient shrines – all remarkably accessible along one of the world’s most advanced and reliable public transportation systems.
