JAPANESE TOURS SELL: KYODO reported tour operators said that sales "have been brisk." This is "contrary to concerns that Japanese tourists might be put off by high-priced tours" to Sochi. Japan travel agency JTB Corp. said that it has "already met its sales target for individual customers." This is "despite the fact that prices were 1.5 times higher than for package tours JTB offered" for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Another travel agency, Club Tourism Int'l Inc., said that it has sold out its ¥1.2M ($115,000) tours. Representatives of HIS Co. said they "have nearly reached their target" (KYODO, 1/14).
