Japan Week, New York's premier Japan travel and tourism event, celebrates its fifth year at Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall on March 10th - 12th, 2016. Japan Week will celebrate the Wonders Of Hokkaido And Tohoku Regions (Northern Japan) at Japan Week 2016,

Organized by Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), Japan Week's sponsors include Delta Air Lines, NHK World, AEON, JR-EAST, City of Tokyo, Kubara Honke, and other additional companies from both Japan and New York.

International television network NHK WORLD will spotlight the REVIVAL OF THE TOHOKU REGION. Showcasing the resurgence of Tohoku's nature and culture, visitors will see what a difference five years can make. NHK WORLD's beloved mascot DOMO will also be in attendance, eager to take photos with visitors.

Japan Week will incorporate a design of the characteristic swathes of pink petals across the event site and exhibitor booths, bringing the Japanese "Sakura-Viewing" experience to Vanderbilt Hall.

Combining Japan's technological innovation with its traditional cuisine uniquely, Japan Week 2016 features a real Kaiten Sushi (conveyor belt sushi) restaurant serving up delicious offerings from Hokkaido and Tohoku, regions renowned for their seafood.

Delta Air Lines, New York's largest and fastest-growing carrier, is offering non-stop daily service to Tokyo. At Japan Week, visitors can experience their Delta Business Elite Seat and receive a coupon for $50 off their next flight.

Japan Week 2016 spotlights the regions of Hokkaido and Northern Tohoku as exciting opportunities for travel while covering the entire Japan. About 40 exhibitors, including businesses, travel agencies, and local Japanese governments, will be in attendance.

Visitors can taste delicious Hokkaido foods ranging from traditional to cosmopolitan. Between handmade seafood croquettes and seafood rice bowls, award-winning chocolates and cheesecakes, and even the area's signature miso ramen noodles, visitors will find out why Hokkaido is one of Japan's major agricultural and culinary centers.

Kubara Honke, a 120-year-old company dedicated to Japanese seasonings, will be showcasing their locally sourced natural products such as "dashi" cooking broth, dressings, and tea.
