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!)

*This could be a good gift for Ghibli fans as well. Please let us know if you are booking the seat for someone and not for yourself.*

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.

*Caution*: Please note that there is a chance that you are the only guest on this tour as we operate this tour from one person.

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.

This was so amazing!! This experience made me happy, just like watching a Ghibli film always makes me happy :) The tour was comprehensive and Yosshi covered a lot of films and places. Seeing the photos and videos was really wonderful! I can't wait until we can travel again and I can visit the places in person!

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!

Yoshi is a wonderful storyteller who took me on a beautiful virtual journey across Japan. Learning about the places that were referenced in Ghibli movies was thrilling in itself. Yoshi added more magic to that by sharing the many possibile experiences that one can enjoy while going on a Ghibli pilgrimage in Japan. If you are not familiar with everything Ghibli, this would also be a great place to get insightful and unique travel recommendations for your next trip to the country.

As much as I love Ghibli movies, getting to see some of the actual places that inspired some of my favourite movies made it all the more special. The fact that our guide also loved Ghibli as much as us made the experience even cooler!

I spent a nice Saturday morning geeking out with fellow Ghibli fans. Yoshi is really knowledgeable with the story behind every location/setting. I really like that she is genuinely interested in the topic, personally went to all of the places and shared lots of insights that I wouldn't get from the internet. Really enjoyed it and would recommend even if you are not a Ghibli fan.
