From culture and history to food and
entertainment, here are a few of the most
interesting options that await groups in Japan.
In Chiba City, visitors can not only produce
their own samurai movie, but perform alongside
professional stuntmen, supported every step of
the way — from identifying locations through
to the editing process — by actors who have
appeared in Hollywood movies including
The Last Samurai. Visitors can also learn about
Chiba’s 890-year history by taking part in tours
of historic attractions, including Chiba Castle
and Chiba Shrine — or visiting some of the
more than 40 breweries, many of which continue
the tradition of sake-making that dates back to
the 17th century.
Groups can also learn more about Japan’s
remarkable technology and research by taking
a facility tour at the National Institute of
Radiological Sciences, which is renowned for its
radiology and cancer research. Visitors can also get
a close-up look at cutting-edge technology at the
Kazusa DNA Research Institute, a facility that
focuses on genetic analysis of humans and plants.
In the Soga district, participants can enjoy
a night sightseeing cruise with views of the
glittering factory buildings. The cruise casts
off from a brand-new landing bridge where a
shopping complex called K’s Harbor stands. A
restaurant serving the freshest seafood — filled
with aquariums — is located in K’s Harbor,
suitable for pre- or post-convention tours.
Hiroshima is a great destination for foodies. The
city produces more oysters than anywhere else in
Japan, so it’s a rewarding place for groups to enjoy
