JNTO launches new website and exciting campaign
Japan National Tourism Organization - www.cash1970.info (JNTO) Sydney office’s official website has been given a makeover. The innovative design and improved functionality aims to enhance the end-user experience, making information on travel to Japan easier to obtain for travellers, travel agents, media and business event planners.
The site content has been expanded and rearranged, showcasing the destination’s ever-evolving offerings. Content has been separated into the inspirational ‘Experiences’ and the more functional ‘Road’ categories so users can navigate through it quickly and easily to find the information they are looking for. The new website is also fully responsive and optimised for mobile, tablet and desktop users.
New features include:
- An interactive map showcasing model routes, ski/snowboard areas and airports
- A user-generated images feed to promote advocacy and inspire future travel to Japan
- A tenders page listing proposal competitions conducted by JNTO Sydney
- Improved functionality for travel agents to add their own travel deals and agency listings. These can then be easily searched by travellers
