Yoji Kimura - Director

Enamoured with New Zealand from his first visit, Yoji made a permanent move in 1997 to manage the JTB’s Queenstown Office.

In 2003 he established his own tourism marketing company promoting Queenstown to the Japanese market. Building upon the relationships he established in this role he went on to found Qbook in 2010. Since that time Qbook has moved from strength to strength opening a second branch in the Kawarau Village while also managing the bookings for the Hilton and Kawarau Hotels.

“I really wanted to share my enthusiasm for all Queenstown has to offer with independent travellers and families from all over the world and Qbook provides a great one-stop shop to do just that.”

Outside of the office Yoji enjoys Queenstown’s relaxed atmosphere, spending time with his dog ’Wai’ and matching a good bottle of New Zealand wine with some great food.
