Morisaki Win, a Japanese film actor and singer of Myanmar descent, was appointed as brand ambassador of Myanmar tourism industry for Japanese market by Myanmar Tourism Federation (MTF) last week according to the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.

The 28-year-old Morisaki Win, also well-known as Ah Win among the Myanmar youths, is the lead vocalist of PrizmaX, a J-pop idol boy band managed by Stardust Promotion and he has appeared in films and TV dramas in his home country Myanmar as well as in a 2018 Hollywood film “Ready Player One” directed by Steven Spielberg.

Sources in the Myanmar tourism industry gave positive comments saying that as he was appointed as the tourism ambassador, there might be better opportunities in the Japanese tourism expos to come as well as more potential arrivals of Japanese travellers to Myanmar.


“Today, the young are most of the travellers in the global tourism trend. We see most of them are under-35. I believe Morisaki Win is able to support and promote Myanmar tourism industry through increasing number of Japanese travellers to Myanmar,” said U Yan Win, chairman of MTF at the event of appointing the film actor as tourism ambassador.

​After the appointment, Morisaki Win is to do tourism promotion activities inclusive of JATA Tourism Expo 2018 to be held in Japan soon representing Myanmar tourism industry in Japanese market.

Currently, Myanmar has received a low number of Japanese tourist arrivals according to the ministry’s statements. The Myanmar authorities already announced that they would grant visa free entry to travellers from Japan and South Korea starting from October in the high season this year.
