Tue, Oct. 31, 2017
CAIRO – 31 October 2017: Japanese ambassador Takehiro Kagawa visited Egypt and cleared the first direct flight from the Japanese capital of Tokyo to Cairo. The flights will launch on Monday after being banned over the past four years, which affect Japanese tourism tours to Egypt.

One Japanese travel agency organizes weekly flight between Japan and Egypt as an initiative to strengthen Egyptian-Japanese relations. After many incidents and terror attacks Japanese tourism decreased since 2010, the ambassador told the press.

These flight are synchronized with Giza Pyramids and Egyptian museum development workshops that start on Monday. They aim to redefine the touristic interests and to raise tourist rates to the highest level.

This Egyptian-Japanese workshop first began in 2009 and it was expected to end in 2013. Due to the political turmoil however the project was postponed. The workshop will take place in the presence of the Japanese ambassador in Egypt, the minister of antiquities Khaled El- Anany, and Egyptian archeologist Zahi Hawass.

This movement is a major push for tourism in both Egypt and Japan.
