What you'll do

Do you like Ghibli animated films? Are you interested in visiting Japan? If both of the answers are yes, this tour is for you!

This online experience will take you to the places in Japan which are said to be the inspirations of seven Ghibli films.
It's about 1-hour experience via Zoom and operated in the hope of expanding the wishlist places of your next visit to Japan(in the near future, we hope!).

**A great birthday/ surprise gift for Ghibli fans**
**Great for team buildings for language schools, university and company's group activity (I'm open to customize the tour for 20+ group)**.
*If you can't find the convenient time slot, please send me the request. *

Let's explore Ghibli-related places throughout Japan without leaving your home! Starting from Tokyo where the animations are being created, we will explore many places which are said to be inspirations of some of the scenes of the films such as the forest of My neighbor Totoro, a bathhouse where Chihiro worked at(Spirited Away), the enchanted forest(Princess Mononke), etc..
We will explore virtually from the north(Hokkaido) to the south (Kagoshima) of Japan.
Discover the richness of the nature of Japan while answering some quizzes with other Ghibli fans.
After the tour, we will share a list of places we covered including the map of Ghibli-themed cafes and restaurants for your future trip to Japan

Hello from Tokyo! I'm Yosshi, a local guide in and around Tokyo area, who grew up with Ghibli films(I did princess-Mononoke for Halloween when I was little) like a lot of Japanese did.

As a grownup, I'm still deeply obsessed with Ghibli and thought that doing an online tour might be a good chance to show people around the world that there are so many beautiful places and small islands in Japan other than Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and other famous cities.

Let's discover the hidden gems in Japan through the eye of Ghibli films together, from home.

Very much recommended! Fun, personalised and interesting. An excellent way to get to know Japan better and inspiration around beloved movies. Would recommend even if you have not seen the films, as the host gives explanations and context which spark an interest.

Very fun experience and well timed. Being in California, sometimes these tours are too early in the morning but this was perfect. I highly recommend!

Yosshi did a wonderful job transporting us to many places we’ve seen in Studio Ghibli movies. She is a great storyteller and shared background about the locale and history that brought the movies to life. I enthusiastically recommend this tour!
