Japan target audience 

At Tourism WA, we focus our marketing activities on targeting 'High Value Travellers' from Japan. These are people who don't mind long haul travel, are considering a holiday to WA, enjoy nature, wildlife, aquatic, coastal and food and wine experiences, and have an above average spend.
