Company history

Nokyo Tourist Corporation (hereinafter NTour) was established in October 1989 when the tourist department of National travel Association of Agricultural Cooperatives (a company established to support the leisure and cultural activities of rural communities) separated to form an independent company that stays in close contact with communities.

NTour promotes exchanges between urban and rural communities, as well as between countries, through various operations and services that center on tourism. It also organizes tours that contribute to the future development of agriculture.

Driven by these goals, NTour has steadily grown its business since entering the huge agricultural cooperatives market and now ranks tenth in the Japanese tourism industry in terms of sales, thanks to its unique business methods and collaboration with farming communities and JA employees. 

While maintaining a close partnership with the National travel Association of Agricultural Cooperatives and JA members, NTour will continue to expand into the leisure industry, promoting harmony between people, agriculture, culture and nature around the world.
