H.I.S is one of biggest travel companies in Japan. Hideo Sawada set up the company as International Tours Co., Ltd. in 1980. He used to be a backpacker. He traveled to over 50 countries from 1973 to 1976. H.I.S stands for Hideo (President of H.I.S) International Service. It has 296 branches in Japan and 271 branches outside of Japan.
According to Nishi Nihon Shinbun, Mr.Sawada is planning to travel by himself from March 2018 for 3 months to a half year. He said “My ideas haven’t been unique lately. I’d like to get stimulated by traveling world”.
It’s unprecedented that a president of big company to travel by himself for months. I bet he will be inspired by traveling world and launch some unique project after traveling.
