• Travel • Hyogo promotes tourism

The Hyogo Prefectural Government has launched public relations activities to introduce inns, hotels and restaurants that welcome international tourists and offer unique attractions via the Internet and international travel fairs to people at home and abroad.

The program covers inns, minshuku (a Japanese version of bed-and-board), pensions, restaurants and eateries that offer unique services, such as hot spring baths, traditional arts and craft, culture or culinary specialties. In order to be registered as such an establishment, it has to meet certain standards, such as the ability to speak English, and receive special training.

Establishments that meet these requirements are registered as ‘Hyogo Authentic Ryokan for International Tourists’(inns), ‘Hyogo Friendly Inns for International Tourists’(minshuku and pensions) or ‘Hyogo Friendly Restaurants for International Tourists’(restaurants and eateries).

The Hyogo Tourist Federation will publicize these establishments via the Internet and international travel fairs. For inquiries, please contact Project Division, Hyogo Tourist Federation (Tel: 078-361-8086). URL: http://www.hyogo-tourism.jp/english/index.html
