Do you like Ghibli animated films? If the answer is yes, this tour is for you! Let's explore Ghibli-related places throughout Japan without leaving your couch.

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 in "Spirited Away", the enchanted forest seen in “Princess Mononoke”, and more.

We will explore virtually from the north (Hokkaido) to the south (Yaku island) 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 some Ghibli-themed cafes and restaurants.

*Caution*: Please note that as animated films are all fiction, the places we explore are not exactly the same as in the animated films. Please note that there is a chance that you are the only guest in this tour as we operate this tour from one person. Please let us know if you prefer joining with other guests.
