It focuses on sharing the local, authentic culture of the regions visited, and participants can enjoy experiencing Japan through the tours hosted by a professional guide.

The new collaboration tour takes participants on a virtual adventure where they discover one of the most beautiful architectural works in Japan - the Kusakabe Heritage House.

This special virtual experience not only explores the historical significance of the Kusakabe Heritage House but also explores its modern functions, which play an important role in the community of Takayama today.
