Our nature, wide landscapes, authentic homesteads, live traditions, mushrooming, autumn colours are just few of the things that fascinate travellers from Japan. Therefore, we have created an attractive promotional brochure in Japanese language.

The brochure will be distributed in the Latvian stand in the largest travel fair JATA Travel Showcase in Tokyo, September 29 – October 2 (the fair attracts the audience of 100 000 tourism professionals and general public) http://www.jata-jts.jp/contents/index/en/ .
