About the Kanto Inbound Travel Awards
Since 2018 – in cooperation with Japan World Link – Tracommy is supporting the judging process for the North Kanto Region Inbound Travel Awards in Japan.
The Inbound Travel Awards aim to drive in more foreign tourists to the region. It is also meant to motivate the local tourism industry to focus more on international markets. The first Kanto Inbound Travel Awards were organised in January / February 2018.
We are proud that we could contribute with four judges in 2019.
See the results from 2019 Awards. Prizes were given to tourist facilities with the best website or best YouTube video in English.

The Saitama Prefecture is Tokyo’s neighbor to the north. Much of southeastern Saitama, including the prefectural capital of Saitama City, are considered suburbs of Tokyo. The western parts are mostly rural and mountains. It includes parts of the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park.
The former castle town of Kawagoe and the mountainous Chichibu region are some of the prefecture’s major tourist attractions. They are known for its night festival held in December.

Ranked among Japan’s three finest landscape gardens, Kairakuen is most famous for its over three thousand plum trees. Kairakuen is located in Mito, the capital of Ibaraki Prefecture, one hour northeast of Tokyo by limited express train. The garden suffered damage from the March 2011 earthquake. However, it was repaired and fully reopened in February 2012.
While worth a visit throughout the year, Kairakuen is particularly popular during the plum blossom season. This takes place from late February through March. The garden features a forest of 3000 trees. Speciality: more than hundred different plum tree varieties with white, pink and red blossoms.
