What you'll do

We are JAPONISME, and we host special virtual experiences of Japan that aren’t just your average sit-and-watch educational videos!

Our interactive tour with fun and friendly quizzes is hosted by an experienced local guide of Japan. We also use professionally filmed footage and specially crafted visuals for you to feel completely immersed in Japanese history, religion, and culture.

We believe that there is true value in traveling when you can get a glimpse of the authentic culture of a region. Enjoy a trip to Takayama, a very special city in Japan, from anywhere — as in your comfy couch or bed! :)

Feel as if you’re walking the streets of Hida, Takayama! Known as “Little Kyoto,” this historic city is full of authentic culture and fascinating sites that will capture your attention. There are spectacular scenes that are limited to this virtual tour where you can enjoy seasonal events all at once. How neat is that?

While visiting a new site is an exciting aspect of traveling, we believe there’s more than that. The joys of traveling include learning new things, picking up the cultural aspects of a region, and making new friends. Join us on a tour to Takayama and make friends with participants from around the globe!

Our tour is the perfect experience for everyone, including those who are new to Japanese culture and those who want to further deepen their knowledge!

I am a nationally licenced Tour Guide of Japan specializing in Japanese History and Art. (Not to brag, but the pass rate for the tour guide exam was only 9.6% this year!)

I have guided over 2,000 tourists, including VIP guests, from around the world. I have top-notch reviews for my tours where I introduce Japanese culture in comparison with the background of my guests.

The pandemic has put international travel on hold. But nothing could stop my passion as a guide, which led me to start my tours on a virtual platform in 2020.

A tour isn't a lecture but an experience to inspire you! Quench your wanderlust and enjoy a trip to Japan from anywhere — as in your comfy couch! :)

Please contact me for details on private tours.

It was a very enjoyable tour. I learnt a lot not only about Takayama but also about Japanese culture. I enjoyed not only the virtual images and explanations, but also the communication with the participants and the quiz :) The tour was very well organized. Looking forward to actually visiting Takayama! :)
