Tourism and conservation working in partnership.

Japanese Tour Operators support conservation in the Lake District

Last year members of the Japan Forum collectively raised over £13,000 to help the National Trust to improve the footpath access around Beatrix Potter’s beautiful farmhouse, Hill Top, in Near Sawrey. 

The generous donations of visitors choosing to book their tour with Japan Forum businesses will be used to support the off-road path project between Hawkshead and Near Sawrey. The aim of the project is to create a fully off-road route, which will make it both safer and more enjoyable for those moving between Hawkshead and Near Sawrey.

Last year, the following businesses were involved:

  • TDR Tour’s Express, Inc.
  • Worldbridge, Inc.
  • JTB World Vacations, Inc.
  • Nippon Travel Agency Co., Ltd.
  • JTB Media-Retailing, Corp.
  • Jalpak Co., Ltd
  • Hankyu Travel International Co.,Ltd.
  • JTB Tokyo Metropolitan Corp. 
  • Hankyu Travel International Co.,Ltd.
  • Eurasia Travel Co.,Ltd.
