Japanese Companies Cancel Trips to France after Paris Attacks

TOKYO - Several Japanese companies with offices in France have canceled business trips to the country post terror attacks by the Islamic State, or IS, Friday, which killed at least 129 people and wounded hundreds.

Electronics giant Canon banned employees from traveling to France while Yamaha and Mazda car manufacturers have advised against layovers too in French airports, reported the Nikkei newspaper Tuesday.

Japan Tobacco, which sells three of the five major cigarette brands globally and has a strong presence in Europe, is studying the impact on their merchandise and sales given recent events.

Other companies such as Toray synthetic fiber manufacturer, who have a textile factory in western France announced it will continue production but will avoid visits from Japan to the area.

Departmental store chain Sogo-Seibu has asked its workers in France to stay at home for the time being.

Shiseido Cosmetics manufacturer recommended its employees in Paris and workers in its factory in central France not leave the facilities unless required, reported the Yomiuri newspaper.

The terror attacks in Paris have also adversely affected the country's tourism industry.

HIS travel agency has canceled all trips to France Tuesday and Wednesday, while JTB agency will not arrange any trips until Nov. 20.

Agencies have attributed the cancelations not only to the attacks but also to stricter security measures in the wake of the attacks.
