In this film from the Inside Stories series we feature interviews with people sharing why the Japanese love New Zealand. Featuring famous and everyday people, including rugby players, chefs, entrepreneurs and innovators, who share their perspective and stories about what makes New Zealand amazing. From our talented people and unique way of thinking, to our world-class food and beverages and care for people and place our films celebrate New Zealand’s unique contribution to the world. Use online and at events and conferences focused on the Japanese market and region. By using a multitude of smaller stories, we could create a narrative big enough to demonstrate that New Zealand’s contribution to the world is limitless and impossible to ignore. Help us spread the word. Become a New Zealand storyteller and share the films through your own channels, using #NZstoryteller.
New Zealand already has a well-deserved reputation for outstanding natural beauty but that’s only a small part of the story. Our nation is filled with artists, business people, entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators whose stories are just as awe inspiring as our landscapes. These are New Zealand’s inside stories. Tales that can only be told by our people and the people that interact with us. To get a realistic picture of this country’s contribution to the world, we knew we’d have to look far and wide.
We would need to talk to hundreds, if not thousands of people who have played a part in our global presence. So that is what we have done. We’ve already interviewed immigrants, expats and every day kiwis, speaking to everyone from school kids, to pensioners and everyone in-between. We have covered stories about food and wine, culture and invention, business, creativity and much, much more. The stories are limitless.
But we need your help. You can become a New Zealand storyteller by sharing our story with the world to help tell the world what New Zealand has to offer.

'Inside Stories' has been designed as an on-going content programme. We will continue to film a range of great people, both New Zealanders and friends of New Zealand, so we can share more and more amazing New Zealand stories with the world.
We've recruited some extraordinary Kiwis and friends of New Zealand to tell some of the extraordinary stories about our country. We'd love you to share who else you think should be filmed?
