Scots Expo Plan

British Council Japan Director Jason James visited Nagasaki Mayor Tomihisa Tagami to request the prefecture’s help in organising a Scotland exhibition, the Nagasaki Journal reported in February.

Nagasaki Prefecture has had strong ties with Scotland since merchant Thomas Glover arrived there in 1859.

“We have benefited from shipbuilding, fishery and tourism through the ties with Glover Garden, so we are pleased to help with this event”, said Tagami.
