Our general manager for Japan, Chisato’s journey in super-opulent travel is a huge circle that’s taken her from Tokyo to London and Singapore and back as she accumulated a unique suite of experiences in hospitality and luxury lifestyle.
“I’ve moved my family back to Japan in the middle of a global crisis, which might seem crazy,” she says. “However, my new luxury in-bound business here means I can share with the world all the hidden gems this country has. I’ll be introducing my clients to amazing places, people and products – from a gifted artisan or the okami-san of a Ryokan – and going deep below the surface of their expectations of Japan.
“I’m still exploring my Tokyo ‘backyard’, and it’s constantly evolving.” Chisato is growing 360 Private Travel’s presence and reputation in one of the world’s most demanding markets, drawing on all the brand’s benefits, pooled resources and reassuring back-up. Added to that is 15 years’ knowledge gleaned everywhere from private members’ clubs in London to high-end PR in Singapore and marketing New Zealand’s most exclusive destinations to Asian customers.
