Feel the mystery of the Orient!

Take a train 20 minutes out from the city, head to the foot of Mt. Ikoma, and you’ll find this place with its air of mystery. Many Ghibli films draw inspiration from nature and the shrines that exist within that nature. So Ghibli fans, take a step out of the city and explore the roots of those masterpieces!

    Hello. My name is Ryota. Please call me "Ryo" for short. I'm a government-licensed tour guide-interpreter. Soon after I was born in chiba prefecture, I was taken to Kansai region where I grew up. I love music, history, and the Japanese culture, but science is not my cup of tea. I'll pull out all the stops to lead you to a deep insight into the Japanese cultural aspect like the difference between a buddhist temple and a shinto shrine and the Japanese way of thinking. I assure you that my guiding will knock your socks off. You can take my word for it.
