Thinking of booking a holiday? Before laying down your deposit, head to Japan's only English-language travel exhibition, Kudos Travel Fair, which takes place on March 24 at The Garden Hall, Yebisu Garden Place, Tokyo, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
The fair, first held in 2002, brings together a range of exhibitors representing airlines, hotel companies, car rental services and domestic and international destinations under one roof.
English-language material and advice will be on hand. In particular, the anticipated 1,000 attendees will be able to find information on hot-spring equipped ryokan, beaches, island resorts, ski trips, relaxation holidays and outdoor adventure activities.
Admission to the fair is free and the first 200 visitors will win a prize. Additional prizes will be drawn throughout the event, although visitors must be in the room to win.
