Japan Art Trip - Ukiyo-e -

A virtual tour that approaches the history of ukiyo-e, a form of art that triggered the Japonisme movement across Europe during the late 1800s. Established during the 250 years of closed borders in Japan, ukiyo-e depicts the everyday life of the common people, prominent Kabuki actors and popular landscapes. This tour goes far beyond a visit to a museum, as it provides comprehensive visual guides on how to understand the content of ukiyo-e. Participants can join this exciting virtual tour where they will travel to the past and discover the amazing world of ukiyo-e!

Virtual Tour Japan - Takayama -

A virtual tour of Hida, Takayama with specially crafted visuals to allow participants to feel as if they're walking its streets. Known as “Little Kyoto,” the historic city of Takayama is full of authentic culture and fascinating sites that will capture one's attention, including the Takayama Festivals, Miyagawa Morning Market, Old Town and more. There are spectacular sights that are limited to this virtual tour where you can enjoy the seasonal events that happen throughout the year, all at once. Participants can experience the best of Hida, Takayama through this guided virtual tour.

Voyage from anywhere
The company is currently in the process of adding two new exciting virtual tours: “Virtual Tour Japan - Kyoto -” and “Virtual Sake Brewery Tour.”

JAPONISME provides trips for participants to feel and understand the true value of a local area. This experience used to be limited to those who could physically come to Japan, but now anyone from around the world can join through a virtual tour.

“To have you truly experience Japan.”

“No matter if you join from far away or if we meet in person, we want your experience in Japan to be like no other that is authentic and will touch your heart.”

With these thoughts as the company's principle, the tours were named “Japonisme.” It invites people across the globe to be inspired by Japanese culture just as ancient Western artists, such as Van Gogh or Monet, had in the past. JAPONISME aims to cultivate a tour brand that will bring new values to one's life.
