The invitees traveled to Egypt to spend the holiday season, Dec. 23-30, 2018, upon the invitation of President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi and the Egyptian government, where they visited most popular touristic attractions in Cairo, Aswan and Luxor. Ambassador Kamel has described this initiative as an act of solidarity and friendship between the two countries, he added that the 27 invitees travelled to Egypt on board of EgyptAir direct flight, which was resumed in view of the increasing flow of Japanese tourists to Egypt, after the Japanese government’s decision of easing the travel advisory concerning the Egyptian touristic destinations. | COURTESY OF THE EGYPTIAN EMBASSY
