JASH Japan Travel Update Webinar


On June 17, 2020, the Japan-America Society of Hawaii (JASH) hosted a panel discussion webinar entitled, “JASH Japan Travel Update.” This was JASH’s first endeavor at virtual programming and we were very pleased to have 160+ people register to attend the program. Panelists addressed questions such as: What is Japanese sentiment in terms of travel to Hawaii and travel as a whole? What has the loss of the Japanese visitors meant in dollars to our economy? What will it take to attract the Japanese visitor back to Hawaii?
