JTA Writing and Style Manual 2022 Published

The output of the Japan Tourism Agency FY2022 “English for Sightseeing Destinations around Japan” Project is now available on the JTA website (text in Japanese)

Among the links provided are the JTA's resources for local sites producing English text for sightseeing locations (includes a short version of SWET's “Six Simple Rules for No-Fail Texts and Signage”), and the latest edition of the Writing and Style Manual, which is available in English and Japanese

The revised edition of the manual is basically the same as 2021, but the sections on "Romanized Japanese in English Text" and "Punctuation" are now better organized. The Japanese edition has been revised and re-edited. The JTA Signage Project is to continue for a fifth year in 2022.
