Greeting

Established in 1961, the Toshima City Tourism Association has worked to develop tourism by highlighting the tradition, culture, and history of Toshima, as well as community events and modern culture that are part of everyday life. We have thus contributed to the creation of an energetic city in the hope that both residents and visitors will love this town. In addition to promoting friendly exchanges across Japan through sister-city agreements with the Chichibu Tourism Association of Saitama Prefecture in 1980, the Yuzamachi Tourism Association of Yamagata Prefecture in 1999, and the Koedo Kawagoe Tourism Association of Saitama Prefecture in 2005, respectively, we have actively sought to fulfill our role as a tourism association by pursuing local development.

In 1999, we also created an independent public relations publication, the Tokyo Toshima Go Go Map. By expanding our promotional efforts, including developing English materials, we hoped to draw visitors from across Japan and around the world. We continue to work hard to meet the needs of all visitors by creating original promotion tools. Adapting to the trends of the times, we have also strived to develop the best website possible, and we would like to use our online presence to promote local development and the prosperity of all corporate members.

Working together with the local community, we want to organize future programs that we hope will help Toshima City continue to grow and prosper. I would like to conclude this greeting by asking for everyone's continued support and cooperation.
