15 Mar JOHOR MATTA MEMBERS’ WORK TRIP TO JOHOR JAPAN FOOTBALL GALLERY
Johor MATTA members’ work trip session to the Johor Japan Football Gallery at the Tan Sri Dato Haji Hassan Yunos Stadium, Larkin was held on 15th March 2018. The one-day visit was organised to survey and evaluate potentials of tourist attractions around Johor Bahru and Iskandar Malaysia to be included in Johor travel packages for 2018.
The gallery built in partnership of Johor Japan Friendship Association (JJFA) and Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) is to commemorate the 20th year anniversary of Japan qualifying for the World Cup after beating Iran at the Larkin Stadium in a 1998 World Cup qualifying match.
The ‘From Larkin To The World’ gallery consists of two display rooms, in which one focuses on Japan’s success and the other on JDT’s rise in local football. The gallery is open to public every day from 10.00am to 6.00pm.
