We want to make travel easier in Japan for foreign tourists to access the more out-of-the way destinations. Japan has so much more to offer beyond the popular tourist destinations.
We endeavor to do this by reducing the cultural friction of travelling in Japan. The result will be more visits to the less travelled destinations, resulting in new tourism growth to depressed regions, and a better understanding of Japan by foreign visitors.
We are a team of seasoned travelers with a passion for Japan. Through our extensive travel in Japan, we realized that many foreigners do not go beyond the well traveled spots of Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. As well, foreign visitors tend to stick to the places that are well-known through traditional travel apps. The reasons are many but we believe that one of the big reasons is the fear of the unknown - mainly the language and cultural gaps, combined with the lack of resources to adequately attract foreign visitors.
Some of our most memorable experiences in Japan have come from exploring the unexplored. And like many, we have experienced the feeling of Iwakan that has resulted in us passing up what could have been amazing local experiences.
With that in mind, we came up with the inspiration for the Tabitori Travel Network to help foreign travelers make a more spontaneous and rich travel experience.
