Abercrombie & Kent introduced a new dedicated office in Japan. The new location marks the luxury travel company’s 15th in Asia.

Hatsuko Tsujimura, a lawyer with over 12 years of experience in the travel industry, will lead the Abercrombie & Kent team in Japan as the region’s country manager. Tsujimura steps into her new position with a strong background in designing itineraries, negotiating with suppliers and coordinating logistics.

Explaining why the Abercrombie & Kent decided to build the new office, China managing director Kath Fok pointed to the extreme growth the company has seen in the country, especially pertaining to luxury small group travel and tailor made private travel. By building its own office, said the director, the company will be better positioned to manage logistics and provide insider access and personalized service.

Each of the company’s offerings in Japan are orchestrated by local guides who are lifelong residents. By working with individuals with such an intimate familiarity with the destination, Abercrombie & Kent hopes to better offer immersive experiences that reflect traditional culture. These offerings can include a private tea ceremony in a family garden in Kanazawa, a private dinner in a 400-year-old home in Kyoto or a tour of Tsukiji with a sushi chef, followed by a hands-on cooking class.
