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!

*Currently I'm doing this tour only on weekends(Japan time) for private groups.*

✔A great birthday/ surprise gift for Ghibli fans
✔Great for team buildings for language schools, university, and company group activity (I'm open to customizing the tour for 20+ groups).

This online experience will take you to the places in Japan which are said to be the inspiration of seven Ghibli films.

It's about a 1-hour experience via Zoom with pre-recorded videos and photos with a live tour guide and operated in the hope of expanding the wishlist places of your next visit to Japan.

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.

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.

Thoughtful, interesting, and so nostalgic. These movies hold such a special place in my heart, super cool to see some of their inspirations up close (even if virtually). Yosshi was engaging and sweet, I had a great time!

I enjoyed the experience a lot! I can't wait for the borders to be open so I can personally visit the places we've seen virtually.

Yosshi gave us a well-researched and entertaining tour! Despite being timezones apart, Yosshi guided us in such a way that felt like we were walking alongside her. There is something on this sweet tour for every Ghibli fan!

Wonderful tour! Yosshi shared many personal experiences and interesting facts that kept us engaged the entire time. We really liked how she gave recommendations for our next trips to Japan!

Yosshi gave us a great tour, with a lot of her own videos and experiences. We learned a lot about places in Japan we'd never heard of, but now want to visit.

This was an awesome experience! Discovering some lesser known places that inspired such amazing films was so cool. Yosshi's presentation was well thought out, and features many personal experiences that showed her passion for studio Ghibli and the beauty of Japan. A great event for families or anyone who loves these films.
