I have been traveling Japan for 17 years and decided to make it my home in 2013.
Using my own experiences traveling in Japan, I am now lucky to be able to share my passion for this country and its subtle culture with travelers from all over the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"My personal taste for History and art incline me towards Historical and Cultural trip.

Cooking being one of my hobby, I also like to recommend culinary experience which is also an excellent opportunity to meet local Japanese people and discover more about their every day life. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Travelling is for me the chance to experience new things, meeting new friends and trying new foods. I am always looking forward to seeing what the place I am visiting has in store for me and love all the unexpected events that occur during a travel.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My first trip in Japan, I went to Tokyo with little to no knowledge of Japanese culture outside of the common belief towards Japanese people.

The immersion was total and the aesthetics of Japan seduced me.
Even after 17 years I still find amazing place and sights to see! "

Best Time To Visit Japan

Japan is famous for its Spring cherry blossoms and its changing colors in Autumn, but there are beautiful places to see in every season. Japan stretches from subtropical southern extremes to the northern reaches just across from Siberia, so with a little planning, you can find the right place to explore any time of year.
