Travel Geeks: Natural Japan - In association with Japan House

About this Event

Japan’s heady juxtaposition of high-tech metropolises and natural wonders makes it one of the world’s most in-demand travel destinations. The current exhibition at London’s Japan House, WOW: City Lights and Woodland Shade, explores the striking contrasts of the nation’s futuristic cityscapes against the quiet beauty of its landscapes. On Tuesday 12 March, join our event at Japan House as we discuss the incredible spots to visit in Japan, from parks in Tokyo to the spectacular misty lakes of Tohoku.

The expert panel will include:

  • Simon Wright, director of programming at Japan House
  • Matthew Joslin, from the Japan National Tourism Organization has been passionate about Japan ever since he started learning the language and inhaling the pop culture in his early teens. Having lived and studied in Tokyo, travelled the country from top to bottom and thoroughly explored and extolled the diverse wonders of off-the-beaten-track Japan, he currently leads on marketing and PR at the Japan National Tourism Organisation.
  • Travel writer Oliver Smith a writer and filmmaker, working for Outside magazine, Lonely Planet magazine and National Geographic Traveller (UK), among other publications. He has been named Travel Writer of the Year on four occasions, and lives in London
  • Sake expert Natsuki Kikuya
  • Moderator Jo Fletcher-Cross, associate editor at National Geographic Traveller, leading the discussion. She is an experienced journalist and a less experienced, but enthusiastic, stand-up comedian. She loves obscure European cities, brutalist architecture and Eurovision.
