SAKE and sushi making are among the mouthwatering online activities on offer from Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau to hybrid conference delegate.
As Japan reopens it borders to vaccinated travellers and group-tour participants, the bureau’s Business Events Tokyo team wants to remind overseas delegates of the capital’s rich culture if they cannot attend an in-person event.
Five activity ideas have been released in the Online Sustainability Experience in Tokyo for International Conferences e-booklet which also helps participants contribute to local sustainability efforts.
Among the activities available is a class on Tokyo Sake making and a demonstration on the making of sushi using locally sourced “Edo-vegetables”. All five activities introduce a unique element of Japanese culture and sustainable initiatives related to some of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
“The achievement of Sustainable Development Goals has become a dominant topic worldwide, and Tokyo is also accelerating sustainable initiatives while taking advantage of its unique culture,” said Kana Nomoto, director of sales with the business events team at Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“After experiencing these incredible online programs, conference delegates will surely want to visit Tokyo to experience the vibrant culture first hand and directly contribute to sustainability in the world’s most dynamic city.”
