The general image of Japanese people is that they are quiet and reserved; if you hold similar images, you will be pleasantly surprised at IJK! In comparison to Tokyoites, Western Japanese have a history as merchants, and enjoy different ranges of products and a more pragmatic and snappy business style.
Besides jewellery, IJK is the world's leading exhibition of pearls, and this is the only event where you can stock up on such quality products midyear! Asides from exploiting new markets and opportunities, the unique dialect, rich culture, and to-die-for gourmet will make your stay in Kobe worthwhile.
Come to IJK and we promise to show you a whole new side of Japan!
