Last year, the Japan Tourism Agency enforced a “Karate tourism contents creation for Okinawa, the birthplace of karate” as part of a global campaign to attract visitors to Japan. OCVB was the main entity in charge of the project.

 This year, OCVB was entrusted with the project “Creating attractive karate tourism” a model project for expanding inbound tourism utilizing local sports resources. This project is sponsored by the Japan Sports Agency.

 As part of this year’s project, a website has been released to support local companies that develop karate related programs. For more details, visit https://karate.ocvb.or.jp/
