Greetings from the Heartland JAPAN Newsletter Editor!
My name is Niki and I am the Editor for the fortnightly newsletter from Heartland JAPAN. We have been mentioned in TTG MICE! See below for the details.

About Heartland JAPAN

We at Heartland JAPAN believe that travel can be a life-changing experience and the means for inspiration. We are a ground operator that provide custom and packaged luxury adventure travel tours to off-the-beaten-track rurally focused locations across Japan. Our mission is to give travellers an insight into authentic Japan. Participants have the opportunity to meet locals, visit historically and culturally important sites, take part in hands-on activities, try regional products and cuisine, as well as enjoy hiking through some of the most breathtakingly beautiful nature Japan has to offer. For more information, please visit our tours website.

Heartland JAPAN in the Media

We have been featured in this article on TTG MICE about growing interest in sustainable tourism for business travel, such as company incentive trips. Our tours are not only great for those looking for an adventure, but can also be a fantastic way for businesses to bring teams together and enhance communication and teamwork within a company.
