Who we are

We love it when a plan comes together

The J Team, established in July 2009, took over the Destination Management Company (DMC) function developed over the past 5 years by Medetours Co. Ltd, which was part of the First Choice Meetings & Incentives Division from 2004-2008, and thereafter a part of TUI Travel.

In our previous entity, we developed a solid reputation as a uniquely creative, attentive and dependable DMC as our business grew, mainly in the Australasian and European markets. Our rebranding as The J Team, with its specific focus on DMC services, has allowed us to take a good thing and make it better, improving our product and range of services, and steadily broadening our sales network around the world.

We are certain that our team’s blend of rich experience and youthful vitality combine to create an indigenous working ethos which can’t be found anywhere else. And, while we are deadly serious about being the best at what we do, we are also aware that travel is ultimately about enjoyment, and hope that our virtual team can add an occasional smile to the months and sometimes years of mutual effort required to produce a successful event.

To the best of our combined 60 plus years of knowledge of the japanese travel industry, we are currently the only specialist DMC in the market here, and uniquely positioned to offer an ideal balance of the service and attention-to-detail quintessential to Japan, and the objective creativity of the long-term resident foreign national.

If you are an Incentive or Event Planner, a Conference Organiser, a Corporate Meeting or Association Planner, or a Bespoke or Special-Interest Travel Producer, allow us to introduce to you the little known but manifold, unique and constantly captivating charms of Japan.
