TOKYO —Mori Building, a leading urban developer, has announced that Roppongi Hills will become the first facility in Tokyo to house both a one-stop tax-exemption counter for all purchases within the complex and a tourist information office staffed with full-time bilingual concierges, both targeted at foreign visitors to Japan, beginning March 14.
The tourist information office, which already is operating, was registered in December as a Category 2 facility under the Tourist Information Center (TIC) program led by the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).To read more, go here.
