Feedback from current corporate IJA members:

“Oomi Travel (previously Unique Japan Tours) joined the IJA in 2007 with the aim to increase our profile of relevant Ireland/Japan contacts in Ireland. Thankfully this has been a success. By attending the regular IJA events, targeted at both corporate and individual members, we have met with many interesting and influential people within this small community. Being a part of an association like the IJA is crucial for any business who is working with, or trying to enter, the Japanese market.” – Darina Slattery, Oomi Travel
