CLUB'S NEWSLETTER

A new power is born.

____

Oct. 26, 2020 |

Dear Colleagues, 2020 is certainly the most challenging year you have faced in a long time and the COVID-19 crisis gave an urge for a new travel industry scene in Japan. As the founder of Hitotoki, our luxury boutique travel agency based in Tokyo, I feel more than ever that cooperating together is a necessary step to get through this difficult period. The HICJ will always remain an apolitical Club. Our goal is to renovate the travel industry in Japan and to suggest improvements as a one shared voice when those are needed, such as for the current “Go To Campaign” which is leaving many of you behind. Contrary to Japan’s historic travel associations, the HICJ doesn’t have any entry fees and the membership is free for the first year. New members can decide which events they want to join and only pay for what they need. Also, don’t hesitate to check out our News page for our latest news and upcoming projects. We very much look forward to welcoming you among us. Kind Regards, Alex Debs HICJ Founder Hitotoki President
