Nakazawa replaces Andrew Reilly, who previously held responsibility for Tourism Australia’s Japan team and left the organisation at the end of April.

He joins Tourism Australia from HRS Hotel Reservation Service Japan, where he is currently the vice-president of business development.

Based in Tokyo, Nakazawa will report to Tourism Australia regional general manager North Asia, Andrew Hogg.

“The Japanese market has rebounded strongly in recent times with visitor numbers growing strongly over the past 12 months,” said Hogg.

“A big part in this turnaround has been the focus we have placed upon strengthening our relationships with aviation, distribution and trade partners in market, as well as strong marketing activity. These are certainly areas where Joe’s experience and strong skill set will give us significant additional momentum.”

Nakazawa said he has a close affinity with Australia after studying for three years at Bond University.

“This is an exciting time to join Tourism Australia and I look forward to leading a highly energised team in such an important market,” Nakazawa said.
