Christmas in Europe

European Travel Commission brings European Christmas traditions to Japan
To celebrate its re-launch, the Japan Chapter of the European Travel Commission organised its first joint event, highlighting Christmas traditions, gastronomy and customs of each of its Member Countries, showcasing Europe’s cultural diversity. By focusing on a Christmas topic, the Chapter intended to convey a message of peace and hope for a future reunion. In light of the ongoing pandemic, the event was hosted virtually on 11 and 12 December. In just 10 days, the initiative managed to gather over 1400 registrations. Quizzes were organised throughout the event with local gifts donated by the destinations present.

The event was organised in partnership with the Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA) and with the support of Miki Tourist. Ms. Kasumi Abe said: “The program was very entertaining and educational at the same time, stimulating curious minds.” Participating countries included the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
