MATCHA's Philosophy

MATCHA is Hiring Professional Writers And Editors! Let's Share Your Creativity with Travelers!

Our vision is to "Help Preserve Japan's Valuable Cultures."

Japan has many beautiful cultures such as Japanese cuisine, sake, traditional crafts, architecture, and others, each with its unique features. Due to issues like commercialization and a shortage of manpower in some regions, traditional Japanese culture is rapidly declining.

Moreover, many Japanese people are unaware of their own traditional culture. MATCHA took as its mission to convey the charm of every region in Japan to people from all around Japan and the world. We are committed to exploring and discovering the wonders within Japanese culture and spreading these values through the ages.

About MATCHA's Founding Anniversary

MATCHA Inc. was born on December 3, 2013. The reason for choosing this day is that on the same day in 1888, Japan transitioned from using the old lunar calendar to the Gregorian calendar, marking the country's move towards global standards.

This aligns with what we want to achieve, namely spreading information about Japan to the world!

MATCHA's Current Status
