The Japan National Tourism Organisation wants more golfers to come to Japan to play the sport while on holiday
sport travel insurance could experience a rise in the number of golfers seeking cover for trips to Japan in the coming months.
The Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) certainly hopes so after launching an initiative to encourage more golfers to come to the Land of the Rising Sun and enjoy a few rounds.
With some 2,400 courses, Japan has the second highest number in the world, second only to America.
JNTO employees recently promoted their country's golfing facilities at the International Golf Travel Market in Turkey, which featured 450 exhibitors and 350 buyers.
Peter Walton, chief executive of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, said: "There is a common perception that golf in Japan is expensive, but in fact, particularly in Hokkaido, the green fees vary enormously and perhaps most interesting of all is that the restaurants, bars and other commodities are reasonably priced and deliver a value for money that will pleasantly surprise many."
