The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has appointed Akira Tsushima its new, Toronto-based representative in Canada.

Tushima, who currently runs a tourism and investment consulting business, will provide information to Canadian travel agents, wholesalers and meeting planners; be a point of contact and provide information to the Canadian media; act as Tokyo’s representative at various events including trade shows; work in close conjunction with the Toronto based office of the Japan National Tourist Office (JNTO) on various activities; and educate travel trade, media and consumers on Tokyo.

This is the first time the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which oversees the Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau, has had a tourism representative in Canada.

With the earthquake and tsunami in March, the appointment takes on even more importance as Japan rebuilds its infrastructure and economy.
