Our Vision
Help Preserve Japan's Valuable Cultures
Our Mission
Create a Japanese Experience that Exceeds Expectations

Japan is full of amazing traditional cultures. From the arts to washoku cuisine, craftsmanship, and architecture, many aspects of life in all regions of Japan have been passed down for generations. Some customs, however, are disappearing, prompting people to take action to try to preserve these valuable traditions. On the other hand, contemporary anime and manga also represent powerful parts of Japanese culture.

Respecting traditions. Adapting to the new.
Both are valuable, and both are part of Japan’s culture.

MATCHA works to reach people around the world through photos and writing based on our real experiences and face-to-face conversations with people throughout every region of Japan. We strive to create content that conveys the essence of Japanese culture in an interesting and inspiring way, so that more people will visit and experience this country for themselves.

We believe one of the most memorable experiences of travel is the people you meet.

Through MATCHA, we hope you can learn about Japan and preview some of its culture. We also hope you will travel through the country, walk around towns, and meet the people here. We hope you will have an adventure in Japan that goes beyond your expectations. After your trip, we hope you will share your experiences with someone––in this way, Japanese cultures will continue on through your experiences and your stories.

It is our calling to help you create this story.
