Since March, Ho Chi Minh City\'s travel agencies have delayed all tours to Japan due to the duo-disasters of 100 year worst tsunami and the Fukushima power plant nuclear crisis. But up to now, Japanese government and people have overcome the difficulties and recovered the normal daily life.

According to Nguyen Van Thanh, sales manager of Ho Chi Minh City-based Samurai Tour Company, the survey trip will be held from May 30 to June 6, targeting tourism destinations in Japan including Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

The trip is hosted by Samurai Tour, which specialises in tours to Japan, in cooperation with All Nippon Airways and several Japanese partners.

Representatives from 12-15 Vietnamese tourism companies will take part, like Festival and Cho Lon Tourist, Thanh said.

“Japanese partners said tourism services have recovered, so we want to bring local companies there to resume tours,” Thanh announced.

“We hope to be able to organise the first tour to Japan this August,” Thanh added, informing that some customers have registered for the August tour, but they still need more commitments to organise it.
