Fukuoka launches training for Aussie agents with Online Travel Training

4 February, 2021: This week, destination marketing organisation, Fukuoka Prefecture Tourist Association has launched online travel training for Aussie agents for the very first time. Using the OTT – Online Travel Training platform, which was recently launched in Australia, Fukuoka has created a course targeted at local agents, packed with prizes to give them insider knowledge and information on Fukuoka’s key selling points.

As Japan continues to grow in popularity amongst Australians, the new training provides a great opportunity for agents to learn about the wide range of experiences available in Fukuoka. Located on the northern part of Japan’s southern island of Kyushu, Fukuoka offers an alternative to the main regions of Japan, with a relaxed atmosphere and buzzing foodie culture that Aussies will love. The destination is heralded as the birthplace of Tonkotsu-style ramen, and is known for its hot springs, picturesque scenery and fascinating history.

The course will cover the four main regions of Fukuoka Prefecture: Fukuoka, including Fukuoka City, and the areas of Chikuho, Kitakyushu and Chikugo. The course is broken up into two modules, and gives agents tips on getting to Fukuoka, exploring the regions, the spectacular nature and outdoor activities, rich culture and history, buzzing culinary scene, festivals and ancient crafts available throughout the prefecture.

Agents will discover the highlights of Fukuoka through quizzes, images and videos with each module taking around 25 minutes, and the entire course taking up to 50 minutes to complete. To incentivise agents to complete the course, Fukuoka is also offering six $100 gift vouchers. Three lucky agents will be drawn at random at the end of February and another three at the end of March. Feel the Good Vibes of Fukuoka!
