In addition to ten existing Okura Hotels & Resorts sales offices, five in Japan in Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka; and five outside Japan in Korea (Seoul), Hong Kong, Taiwan (Taipei), North America (Denver) and Europe (Amsterdam); the companies will assign sales representatives and share sales offices in six locations: New York, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt, Paris and Moscow.
