Dear International Fugu Association members,
Japanese activities have become more active little by little.
The Japan Tourism Agency will finally launch the Go-To Travel Campaign in Tokyo.
The number of people coming and going will increase, but we will deal with it wisely.
It seems that the ban on international business travel, which was our long-cherished desire, will be lifted starting with Singapore, and it appears that we will finally get busy.
① It will finally start this week!
I am not trying to boast, but luck is on the "seafood show."
The last big exhibition event in Japan was the Seafood Show Osaka 2020, and the first significant exhibition since the coronavirus epidemic is the Seafood Show Tokyo 2020.
It is the result of the hard work of everyone involved.
With gratitude that we can hold it there, seven companies of Fugu traders. They will gather as a group at the International Seafood Show Tokyo from September 30 to October 2, and exhibit the first "Fugu Pavilion."
They are International Fugu Association, Shimonoseki Next Generation Meeting, Kanmonkai Co., Ltd., Yoshida Suisan Co., Ltd., Shoryu Co., Ltd., Michinaka Co., Ltd., Yamaga Inc.
We are looking forward to the evaluation as we will propose new Fugu products for each company in the With-Corona era.
We will also have an event booth in the Fugu Pavilion, which will present a Professional study course for those who want to know more about Fugu or who are already familiar with it from 14:00 to 15:00 on Wednesday, September 30, and Thursday, October 1.
We will demonstrate and explain the secret of toxin-free Fugu migaki and sashimi with special permission from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Furthermore, from 12:30 to 14:00 on Wednesday, September 30, we will host the International Fugu Association's first online conference and business meeting at the event booth.
Regional representatives from New Zealand, Hong Kong / Macau, Taiwan, and Singapore will report on the local situation
and give a live presentation of the latest trend on processed Fugu products.
If you would like to watch it, we will inform you of the ZOOM account, so please write "I want to watch" in the return mail.
The show management will implement thorough safety measures against coronavirus at this seafood show, so visitors must make reservations in advance.
You can make a reservation from the below URL.
2.Fugu export questionnaireThe first Fug export questionnaire for all Fugu handling companies in Japan started counting this month. Still,
we are waiting for the national Fugu federation response, which boasts the largest number of members.
Since the federation's prominent members are restaurants that handle blowfish, they modified it to include inbound traveler topics.
In any case, we will announce the result around mid-October.
Please look forward to it as well.
I think it's a beautiful picture showing Mr. Matsumura's love of Fugu, who made "Shimonoseki Fuku" known all over the country.
The title "Shimonoseki Fuku waiting for auction."
We will post it at each event.
Thank you very much.
We thank you for your continued support.
That's it for this newsletter.
