In Japan, Kyoto’s third-most popular tourist attraction, Nijo Castle, is now available for meetings and events through its official DMC, The J Team.
The venue, a UNESCO World Heritage site, will be available for gala dinners, drinks receptions and parties.
Nijo Castle was built in 1602 by Tokugawa Ieyasu before being used by a succession of military leaders known as Shogun. Nijo Castle was famous for the unusual relationship between Japanese leader Tokugawa Ieyasu and his British advisor William Adams – a legacy THE J TEAM hopes to continue through the combination of the castle’s Japanese heritage and potential international delegates.
“Kyoto is home to more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in the world,” said Kyoto Convention Bureau’s international marketing co-ordinator James Widgren. “Nijo Castle is a truly unusual space [and] will allow organizers to think creatively as they develop events following the Castle’s opening later this year.”
