Japan Week launched today in New York City with exhibition halls in Grand Central Station featuring a Delta 747-400 Business Elite seat with pilot tuck-in service, swag, and a contest for a trip for two, in economy, to Japan.
I saw the press release and decided to pop up during my lunch hour, coinciding with the kick-off event. There are numerous booths from featuring Japanese companies, food (no free samples) and tourism.
Delta had quite a crew out there, including 6’5″ Tyler, familiar to regular passengers on the JFK-NRT route for his superlative Japanese language skills.
Japan Week runs March 6-8 and includes meal offers tied in with NY Restaurant week, see the official Japan Week website for more details.
