Working toward Peace

Takayama City Peace Day

Takayama is an international tourist city which many people from all over the world visit each year. As shown in the United Nation’s slogan of “Tourism, Passport to Peace” the promotion of cultural understanding via tourism plays an important role in world peace. The UN designated September 21st as the International Day of Peace and requests that member countries make efforts toward world peace. In response to this, Takayama City designated September 21st as the “Takayama City Day of Peace” in 2013.
