Kyoto opens 400 year old Nijo Castle for meetings and events

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

kyoto-Nijo-CastleKyoto’s third most popular tourist attraction Nijo Castle is now available for meetings and events through 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 Convention Bureau’s international marketing co-ordinator James Widgren said: “Kyoto is home to more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in the world. We are incredibly lucky that so many of these historic venues are willing to open their doors to the meetings and events industry, allowing business visitors from around the world to enjoy their unique offering. Nijo Castle is a truly unusual space, it will allow organisers to think creatively as they develop events following the Castle’s opening later this year.”

THE J TEAM’s managing director Geraint Holt commented: “The selection of THE J TEAM as the only specialist inbound company amongst the official co-ordinators recognises our record in producing ever more-memorable international MICE events over the past 10 years. It is also evidence of the regard in which the company is held amongst Japanese MICE suppliers and the desire of Kyoto City to see this exciting addition to Japan’s venue portfolio host international events in the near future.”
