Chubu Centrair International Airport Nagoya is encouraging Thai travellers to experience Chubu region, a cultural hub in the heart of Japan with actress Natthaweeranuch “VJ Ja” Thongmee, host of “J Journey” on YouTube.



The airport’s campaign “Next Landing Nagoya” is designed to promote various tourist attractions to which tourists can easily travel from Nagoya such as Shirakawago World Heritage Village, Gero Onsen, one of the famous onsen, Iga Ninja Museum, among others.

“Chubu Centrair International Airport is the main international airport in Nagoya. The airport is about 40 km away from Nagoya City. Tourists can easily travel to the city in just 28 minutes by train. Nagoya is Japan’s third largest city after Tokyo and Osaka. It is located midway between these two cities. Nagoya is considered a midpoint connecting popular destinations in Chubu Region and nearby, such as Takayama and Shirakawago. You will get to know more about Japan once you visit this area,” says Harunori Nishiguchi, Business Development & Marketing Manager, Southeast Asia.

“On this occasion, Chubu Centrair International Airport Nagoya has joined with VJ Ja to launch the “Next Landing Nagoya” campaign. It invites Thais to experience in Chubu Region starting from Nagoya city and enjoy the culture, fun activities, beautiful scenery, and of course some incredible dishes such as Hitsumabushi or Nagoya’s speciality charcoal grilled eel and Fried Pork Miso Katsu or pork tonkatsu with miso sauce.”

“Chubu Region offers a lot more than I thought. Not only that it has beautiful nature, the local food is also very unique, especially the Matsusaka beef, which is so soft that it melts in the mouth. The people are also friendly. I think it is a perfect place to bring friends, lovers, and families there,” VJ Ja said.

“I have been to Japan several times, but this trip is especially memorable. I want to invite Thai travellers to try this central region of Japan and get a new experience. You can follow the beautiful photos from this impressive trip on Instagram at #NextLandingNagoya,” the actress adds.
